Intussusception Child Curls Into Fetal Position
My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?
Sorry for your loss: Tragically, many fetal deaths after 40 weeks remain unexplained. Cpd means that the baby gets "stuck" after a very prolonged labor. If your baby died before labor started, then it wasn't cpd. If you decide to have another child, give yourself enough time to grieve and heal, and then work closely with a perinatologist (high risk OB specialist) who can do extra specialized testing and monitor well. ...Read more
Full placental abruption on way to hospital pushed at home thought bowel movement. He survived but bad labor- is 9 with some behavior issues-related?
Maybe,maybe not: Abruption can injure baby by decreasing oxygen and nutrient supply during the increased stresses of labor. The first expected markers for injury would be general instability, low blood sugar and seizures within 24 hours. Developmental delays, a seizure disorder and some evidence of cerebral palsy would also be possible.Behavior issues could be linked or arise from a separate trigger. ...Read more
Can the tucking of my baby's thumbs in her fists be associated with neurodevelopmental issues? She is 6 weeks.
Maybe,maybe not: Fisting is common in the first couple of months as a reflex in the newborn & often can be triggered bu the lightest touch on the palm or just happen. This brings the fingers & thumb in to a clutched position. By 3-4 mo the baby will have the hand open more & the reflexive grasp gives way to a purposeful grasp.A hard inward deviation of the thumb that will not relax is a problem ...Read more
Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?
Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
Can raising a premature baby's feeding from 19cc to 30 cc play a part in the baby getiting necrotizing enterocolitis?
Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?
Baby moving: At 33 weeks, the placenta isn't likely to move any more, it will stay anterior upper. By 33 weeks, the baby has probably settled in for the term BUT if you've given birth before, there in an increased chance that the baby can still shift around to transverse or breech. This is much less common if it's your first. ...Read more
Can 4 weeks of fetal IUGR (AC measures 3% at 25w, back to normal at 32w) cause future adverse consequence/risk to boys when they grow up to adults.
Hard to say: The potential causes of slow fetal growth are many and the impact often unknown until the kid grows up. If it were fetal infection the potential adverse outcome would be considered more worrisome than a simple "poor placenta" issue. I would love to give you a clear answer but in most cases we just have to wait. ...Read more

Can sleep positions affect height? Does sleeping w/ 1 leg bent in fetal position or legs straight (feel bit pulling behind knees) add height in adults
Not really: Any comfortable sleeping position may be used, and none of the positions add height more than any other position. All the comfortable positions will add the same slight amount of height, because weight is taken off the spine during sleep (the vertical downward force of gravity is not acting vertically upon a person's spine, during typical sleep in a bed). The effect goes away, when one stands up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Gestational sac has consistently measured 1-2 wk behind baby. Baby growing normally according to dates with a good hb. Worrying? Space to grow?
GS size: GS size correlates very poorly with dates, so I would not worry much so long as the baby CRL continues good growth. Obviously it's not possible to say more online; just keep up with your regular visits, and keep good communication with your doctor. ...Read more
24 f, uterus measures 7.45 x 8.8 x 3.42cm. It is ante-verted flexed position and echogenic pattern. Uterus size increased in 1year. What's this mean?
Uterus: The two main things that come to mind are early fibroids and adenomyosis. A nonspecific enlargement of the uterus outside of pregnancy is often times seen in adenomyosis. Though I have to tell you, the measurements you are giving here are fairly normal uterine size. It could also be the technique used to measure and not a true enlargement. ...Read more
