What is transverse lie?

What is transverse lie?

Unstable position.: Fetuses tend to have longitudinal lies in pregnancy - be they cephalic or breech. Transverse lies are less common and involve the fetus with its spine axis perpendicular to the mother's spine axis (head to right or left, spine up or down). If persistent, transverse lies need cesarean section for delivery, unless external cephalic version [with epidural and terbutaline under real-time u/s] works.

Are there worrisome symptoms that can associated with a baby positioned in a transverse lie?

Are there worrisome symptoms that can associated with a baby positioned in a transverse lie?

TRANSVERSE LIE: Baby is in a floating position before term. Your OB usually can still change baby's position before delivery. Not sure what month they do it. Get assurance from your OB that everything will be alright. Good luck!

I have a transverse lie at 35 weeks, and the baby won't move with exercises that my midwife has recommended. Your thoughts?

I have a transverse lie at 35 weeks, and the baby won't move with exercises that my midwife has recommended. Your thoughts?

Version: If malpresentation persists at 37 weeks, an external version may be attempted where the provider places hands on the abdomen and attempts to guide the baby into the proper position. There can be complications, so this should be done in a hospital with fetal monitoring and the ability to perform a csection if necessary.

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

Hyst'omy MANDATED: Hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon.

How can an NT scan determine gender?

How can an NT scan determine gender?

Nt scan and sex: NT is the ultrasound appearance of neck tissue in the first 3 months of a pregnancy. In a study of 56, 000 pts, for an unknown reason, the neck in females is about 10% thinner. Http://s3.amazonaws. Com/publicationslist. Org/data/kevinspencer1/ref-184/pnd2009_29_578_581.pdf The measurement is to exclude Down's, not for sexing. Most reliable is to wait until you can see a penis later in the pregnancy.

How will I know the gender of my baby?

How will I know the gender of my baby?

Ultrasound by 18 wks: If you can't waite until the birth, you may be lucky enough to see it during a routine ultrasound, often done around 18-20 wks. It is not a 100% that the ultrasound tech person can tell you during this procedure--baby may not be willing to show. There are places offering 3-d ultrasound with dvd/video recording for a nominal fee. No doctor-order needed. Congrats and good luck.

May I know the Gender of the Fetus?

May I know the Gender of the Fetus?

Ultrasound: You will need to have an ultrasound to know the gender of the fetus. You can also do an amniocentesis which is more invasive but more accurate and definitive to get a DNA test for sex determination. I am not sure if that is necessary unless you have a family history of genetic disorder that is related to sex of the baby.

Wants to know about gender of fetus?

Wants to know about gender of fetus?

Depends: It depends on the stage of pregnancy what is the best way to determine the gender of a fetus. Chorionic villus sampling is possible in the first trimester. In the second trimester, amniocentesis is possible. Ultrasound is possible a little later but is less reliable and dependent on fetal positioning and the skill of the tech doing the ultrasound. The reason for doing the testing determines which
