Pregnancy Fetal Positioning
No: Increased Fetal Movement is not a common complaint. It is not a sign of labor. If you just ate a huge carbohydrate meal then maybe you have some increased movement. In pregnancy, I usually follow one rule. If you find something is not usual and normal for you go to Labor and Delivery and get the baby checked with a Non Stress Test. This is the only safe thing to do. ...Read more
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Not always, but...: Alcohol can damage a baby's brain causing cognitive, learning, emotional and behavior problems. We don't know how much alcohol it takes, but we do know that drinking too much on just a few occasions can cause FAS even if you don't drink at all during the rest of the pregnancy! best option—no drinking while pregnant. Next best—stop drinking as early as possible in pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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
Yes…: The normal range for fetal heart rate (FHR) is 120-160, so 127 is considered normal. However, the FHR alone is insufficient in determining the wellbeing of a fetus. In general, a moving baby is a healthy baby. There are other tests to see if the fetus is doing well such as a non-stress test (NST). ...Read more
6w 4d pregnant with fetal pole, yolk sac ...heartbeat detectd...but seems gestational sac is irregular...sign of miscarriage?
Don't worry: The most important thing is that the fetus has a heartbeat. Did they tell you an actual fetal heart rate? Sometimes the gestational sac looks different. There could be a nearby fibroid or subchorionic hemorrhage. Signs of a miscarriage are uterine cramping and bleeding. If you are not having those symptoms I would not worry about this. The sonogram can be repeated in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more
If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby still change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech babies?
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
Yes: Usually it happends when mom has a low pressure and by default the fetus does too. If the umbilical cord gets compressed there will also be poor fetal perfusion. Some medications can be tranmitted to fetus and cause hypotension and poor perfusion. If prolonged it can be disasterous to the baby. ...Read more
Yes: At 28 weeks, a woman is in her last trimester, the fetus can definitely begin to position itself for a vertex or head first delivery. ...Read more
AB+ foetus: No reason an ab+ foetus cannot survive, especially if the mother is also rh positive. If the mother is rh negative the problem would only arise if she had a previous rh positive baby and was not treated with a medicine called Rhogam during pregnancy and immediately after delivery. Treating a pregnant rh negative woman with Rhogam prevents her body from reacting against the growing baby. ...Read more
NO: Early pregnancy prior to the organs developing is not a vulnerable time for the embryo. Don't worry. You should have a routine ultrasound at about 14 weeks and they can look at the entire fetus to ensure that all looks ok. Many pregnant women have exposure like this and do just fine. ...Read more
Depends: Anywhere from 5-6 weeks since your last period. It really depends on the resolution of the ultrasound machine. ...Read more
Varies : Some exposures are time sensitive, thalidamide produces undeveloped limbs only to those exposed from 6-9 wks. Some are variable, alcohol can alter facial features or heart formation in the 1st trimester but injury to brain function throughout pregnancy.Some infections cause fetal loss early, but organ injury, deafness, blindness etc if it occurs late. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 13th week pregnant and it just aborted last night... What does it mean having a dry fetus pregnancy doc?
If u had unprotected sex 1 day before a keep procedure can I still be at risk of pregnancy and if so will the fetus survive?
Yes: I assume you mean LEEP procedure. You could still conceive and it is unlikely that the procedure would induce a miscarriage although there is a slightly higher overall risk of pregnancy loss in women who have undergone LEEP procedures.For more information www.askyourgynecologist.org ...Read more
I hear that a lot of times a fetus can eat their own waste, during pregnancy and during delivery, what cause this to happen?
Mother Nature : See during fetal life, fetus is packed inside an amniotic fluid filled sac, he has no choice but to drink and pee that fluid out. Behind this what's the logic is that if his food pipe is blocked he won't be able to swallow the fluid so mother will have too much fluid in sac on other side problem with fetal kidneys don't let him pee so less fluid. His poop he swallows or inhales in distress mostly. ...Read more
My friend has taken 2 tablets of methergine (methylergonovine) on her 2nd or 3rd month of pregnancy, what will happen to fetus?
If not lost, nothing: Was your friend attempting to produce an abortion? If so, i would recommend she sees an obstetrician/gynecologist or competent abortion provider and stop improvising (placing her health/life at risk). In answer to your question, if the pregnancy was not lost, the effects at this early stage should not be discernible (all or nothing rule applies). I cannot exclude fetal brain ischemia, though. ...Read more
Fetus's tissue testing on D&C (8 weeks and 2nd early MC) showed turners syndrome in the feutus. Future pregnancy implications of this? Any precautions
Generally no: In general, in each subsequent pregnancy, the chance of having another pregnancy affected by Turner syndrome would not be increased given that it occurs due to a random error in the splitting of chromosomes during the creation of sperm usually, though sometimes also the egg. Unlikely to recur in a first time case. ...Read more
