How do you know if your baby will have a head full of hair at birth andcan you tell by ultrasound pucs?
Hair ==>Cute images:
Let me start with this: looking for hair is not a reason to do or prolong an ultrasound. However, as someone who has done countless ultrasound studies, I have seen fetuses with hair on their heads floating in the fluid. We can sometimes estimate whether there is a full head or only ring-like "monk hair" toward the end of pregnancy.
The fetal pictures are cute, but the newborn ones are even cuter! ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

4 months after giving birth I started lossing my hair. It stopped @ 7 months. My child has just turned 1 & it's happening again! Is this normal?
Telogen Effluvium: Sudden your loss is a prominent sign of the end of a pregnancy. During pregnancy the hair grows luxuriously, and then at the end of pregnancy the hormones change suddenly and the support for hair growth is removed and the hair is lost. Sometimes extensive amounts of hair can be lost. This has to do with the growth phases of hair, but if it does not relate to a pregnancy, you should see a dermatolo. ...Read more

Error in dates / Pbm: Having a large head is relative. If you are supposed to be "x" weeks along you are supposed to have a head of a certain size, if your head is bigger, you might be further along. You might also have a developing problem in your head, but that is where a more specific ultrasound or interpretation by a specialist needs to be considered. ...Read more
What does it mean IHF-0, 8cm on head ultrasound in 5 months old baby and what are the consequences?
Interhemispheric fissure (IHF) is measured when US is done for large head size most of the time. It allows one to determine whether enlarging head size is due to fluid outside the ventricles vs inside. If the US did not show fluid inside enlarged ventricles and did show an upper limit of normal IHF, the cause of enlarging head is likely benign.

After successful whipple operation and full removed of pancreatic tumer from head since 18 month. I found on ultrasound scan heterogeneous at sergury?
What is your doctor': I suspect your doctor must have done some explaining about the ultrasound findings. If you are concerned, then you will get much better information with getting a CT scan of the abdomen. An ultrasound is a less reliable test for abdominal problems and is only used in select situation and then only as a complementary test. It is a poor mans CT scan, so its not always reliable. ...Read more

At my last ultrasound, my baby's head measured 33cm, belly was 34cm, and femur was 7.9cm. How much does my baby weigh? I was 37 1/2 weeks at the time.
Ask your doctor: The ultrasound machine will have generated an estimated fetal weight based on these measurements. Your doctor should have that report. That said, this is typically quite inaccurate as it is only within +/- a pound. So a "6 pd" baby on ultrasound can weigh anywhere from 5-7 pounds at birth! ...Read more

I'm not on any birth control so the doc assumes I wana have a baby so he gave me some vitamins will they help with hair & skin to?
Prenatal Vitamins: I think your doctor does not assume you want a baby as much as he wants a potential pregancy to be as healthy as possible. Prenatal vitamins, especially folic acid, will help to prevent birth defects as well as help make sure you are both getting your necessary vitamins for optimal health. Prenatal vitamins do help with healthy hair and skin, especially if your diet is lakcing any nutrients. ...Read more
I'm 36 weeks OBGYN said baby head was low with ultrasound yesterday does that mean she will come soon. My first daughter came at 38 weeks. I was 1cm dilated and still thick when she checked me at 34 weeks she didn't check me yesterday.
Maybe maybe not: Your body will know when its time for labor. Many multiparous women are dilated 2-3 cm by term and sometimes are quite low in the pelvis. Remember most OB docs have an answering service, so if you start having some labor pains that are regular call the office number even if after hours and talk with your OB. I don't check often at 36 weeks myself. Too many exams increase infection. ...Read more
