Confusing question: Babies are usually carried in a vertical position. Do you mean bottom first ? If so there is a chance that surgical delivery would be safer for a big baby. Yet you do have quite a while for baby to turn head down. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage because my babies were in the same sac i only pass 1 placenta can i have a healthy baby getting pregnant 4 months time?

Yes: Did the babies die in utero and the labor follows? Even though it was a monochorionic monoamniotic pregnancy (same sac, one placenta), miscarriage of a viable pregnancy is uncommon. This type of pregnancy is at increase risk for intrauterine fetal death not miscarriage at 18 weeks. Usually, Steroids are administered early for fetal lung maturity and delivery by C-section at about 32 weeks. ...Read more

These twins hardly ever survive because no membrane separates their cords, so the normal movement will eventually wind up twisting the two cords around each other until strangulation occurs ...Read more

Depends : Examination of the urine of an infant will usually not show meth if stopped 2 weeks or more before delivery.If the stool is examined, it may retain evidence of meth use for several months.Stay clean & you can avoid a multitude of problems for baby & might not end up loosing the child as a cps case. ...Read more
