Is Cephalic Position At 21 Weeks Dangerous
Yes: Hi! Cephalic presentation means that the head is down which is the right position for a normal vaginal delivery. Since it's only 20th week, baby still has some room to move but most likely will not turn around. Your ob will continue monitoring baby's position because it's also important for the vertex (top of head) to be the presenting part. Good luck. ...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
Depends: If you have plenty of extra help and it is not discomforting for you to do so, then - yes. If in doubt, not feeling well or don't want to worry about possible consequences, then have some one else do it for you. ...Read more
How common are cord accidents/prolapse/compression with footling breech at+after 28 weeks of pregnancy? is footling breech dangerous during pregnancy?
Yes: It is possible to feel Braxton Hicks as early as 16 weeks. Normally It lasts about 30 seconds & may feel once or twice an hour. Some experts think Braxton Hicks contractions toned uterine muscles, cervix & prepare it for labor contractions! Make sure you know the difference between Braxton Hicks with labor contractions & other complications. Always check with your Obstetrician for certainty. ...Read more
Can a baby move from vertex to breech position after 38 weeks? he is in vertex position from the very beginning.currently he is at -1 station
Maybe/unlikely: You will know the final position when you go into labor & changes do occur. However, it is much more likely earlier in pregnancy when the amniotic fluid/baby ratio is higher & there is more room for them to maneuver. If He has maintained a steady position for 38 wks, it is likely to stay that way. However, I wouldn't make any bets on it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't worry: It sounds like you are getting good care. Try not to worry as it is not good for you nor your pregnancy. Just wait and see what the tests show. Try to enjoy your pregnancy, and do what you can to stay healthy.

A bit early: Most mom's don't report any fetal movement until at least 16 weeks, so this is a bit early for any sensed movement.Most don't report hiccup like activity until the last month or so of pregnancy.This can continue off and on through pregnancy and the baby may do so after delivery. ...Read more

Lam pregnant at 28wk. gestational by twin one is cephalic and 2nd is breech..can delivered normally?
Can't say now: There is time for both to change presentations which may alter delivery plans. There are also a number of potential problems with twin pregnancy that can come up urgently and require change of plans. Only half of twin pregnancies make it past 36 weeks and most of them require C-section delivery. If all things become favorable you might deliver from below, but don't expect it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is low lying placenta the same as placenta previa? At 28 weeks what are the risks/how dangerous is it? How will it affect rest of pregnancy and birth?
Not the same...: A low lying placenta is when it is close to the cervix, but not covering it like a previa does. The risk of either is bleeding, esp. Once in labor. But a low lying placenta is much more likely to move up the side of your uterus & out of the way prior to this. Your dr. Will follow this with serial ultrasounds until then. Probably smart to avoid intercourse & to report any bleeding until clear. ...Read more
Baby is in the head down position at 29 weeks. Is she likely to stay there? Does this increase the possibility of preterm/early delivery?
Yes and no: Since most babies deliver from the head down position it is likely to end up that way but change is possible. No, being head down does not mean you are more likely to deliver early. Be aware of your sensations and check out any early contractions with the OB to be sure you know when to come in for an evaluation.Early labor can be stopped so baby has a better chance to avoid newborn intensive care. ...Read more
Couple reasons: Normally at 6 weeks you should see a sac, a yolk sac, the fetal pole and an early heartbeat. When you dont see what you expect, there are 3 possibilities: the pregnancy is not quite as far as you think, the pregnancy is abnormal, or it is just hard to see on ultrasound. So i would just repeat in 1 week and know for sure! ...Read more

Yes on ultrasound: If you were to look with ultrasound, and there was a healthy pregnancy at 8 weeks, you can definitely see movement. The arms and legs are not fully formed, though, at this point. If you are asking if you can feel fetal movement at 8 weeks, the answer is no. ...Read more
