Can you tell me about fetus cephalic presentation and placenta anterior low lying will I deliver before my due date?

All normal: Fetus in the cephalic presentation just means the baby is head down. The placenta is on the front wall of the uterus which is normal and it is low on that wall instead of high on the wall. None of these things should lead to early delivery. Good luck! ...Read more

There is single active intrauterine fetus with Breech presentation. Fetal body movement and cardiac activity are present. What does. It.mean?

There is single active intrauterine fetus with Breech presentation. Fetal body movement and cardiac activity are present. What does. It.mean?

Breech: This means your baby is in the uterus, butt first, the baby is alive and doing well. The only issue here is, if you are near your due date and the baby is breech (butt first), you will likely need a cesarean section unless you opt for an version, a procedure to flip the baby from butt to head first, then you can deliver vaginally. If you are early on the baby changes position all the time. ...Read more

Intrauterine low lying viable fetus at 8 weeks.172 bpm. Can travel. Can have intercourse.. pls explain?

Intrauterine low lying viable fetus at 8 weeks.172 bpm. Can travel. Can have intercourse.. pls explain?

Puts you at risk: Honestly, a low lying fetus means there is a higher chance for developing placenta previa, where part or all of the placenta lies over the cervix. There is less blood supply in the lower part of the uterus and so miscarriage chance is a little higher, as is risk for growth restriction, preterm birth, and need for c-section. Avoid heavy lifting, sex until 2nd trimester, smoking, stress, traveling ...Read more

On the sonography report, it was notated "intrauterine gestation 17w 6d." is this the actual fetus size? Does intrauterine gestation mean time of fetus in uterus?

Yes -relax.: Intrauterine means that the pregnancy is where it is supposed to be: inside your womb. The estimated gestational age is the result of measurements of the size/weight of the fetus and is pretty accurate before 20 weeks in predicting your due date. Congratulations! ...Read more

R there any symptoms of intrauterine fetal death? I'm 18 w preg. And felt the baby moves for 2 days then I'm not sure if it's the baby or gases anymore

Talk to your midwife: There is no reason to worry, a quick visit for a fetal heart rate check will let you know if the baby is ok.
We prefer that you come n for an evaluation early, rather tan wait and worry.
Moms start feeling baby movement between 16 and 20 weeks, it may not be obviously 'baby' at 18 weeks. ...Read more

U/s:single intrauterine gestation sac & fetal pole crown2rump 0.53cm 6w3d + or - a wk no yolk sac/ hb. Nxt u/s i'll be 11wk. Should I worry? Dating off?

A little concerning: More information needed but if a fetal pole is present and can be measured, then a fetal heart beat should seen. If there is just a gestational sac with no fetal pole, then the size of the gestational sac matters. A gestational sac that measures 18mm should have fetus with a heartbeat and if not, then a miscarriage is most probable. Good luck. ...Read more

Is this normal pregnancy or miscarriage? Report details: single intrauterine gestational sac seen measuring 2.2 cms, corresponding to 6+ weeks no fetal

A little early: It sounds like your sonogram showed a very early pregnancy. Since no baby was seen there are two possibilities - too early to see or a miscarriage where the baby did not form. The sonogram will needed to be repeated in 1 -2 weeks to find out which is correct. ...Read more

Hi I have anechoic structure with in endometrial canal with signs of intrauterine pregnancy no yolk sac or fetal pole? Is this bad LMP was 12/29

Hi I have anechoic structure with in endometrial canal with signs of intrauterine pregnancy no yolk sac or fetal pole? Is this bad LMP was 12/29

Indefinite: Based on your LMP, you would have conceived mid February and your pregnancy would be 4-5 weeks post conception. This early in pregnancy evidence of a viable pregnancy may or may not be evident on ultrasound. However, if yolk sac & fetal pole aren't visualized, a healthy pregnancy can't be confirmed. If there's any?? ultrasound can be repeated along with HCG measurements in another week or so. ...Read more

Ultrasound result: single live intrautrerine pregnancy, presently cephalic, 20weeks and 5days gestation, oligohydramnios fetal ascites. What can I do

See perinatologist: Its frightening to have an ultrasound that gives news that isn't perfect. Oligohydramnios means that there isn't enough fluid around the baby. You can help make more fluid by drinking lots and lots of water and getting enough rest. You need to see a perinatologist to find out why. This is a doctor who concentrates on complicated pregnancies to find out why. Best Wishes! ...Read more

Anteverted, bulky gravid uterus, single intrauterine gestational sac 2.7 cm gestational age 6 weeks 6 days no fetal pole is this OK? Or a miscarriage?

Blighted ovum: A gestational sac without a fetal with a gestational age of almost 7 weeks is most likely a blighted ovum (non development of the fetus). Most likely with result is a miscarriage. If not you may need a D&C. Follow up with your gynecologist in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Single intruterine fundal gestational sac is seen with no detectable fetal pole development at 7 weeks 4 days will the baby survive looks like 5weeks?

Less likely: So, the first assumption is that the dating is correct. If you are truly 7+4 weeks, there should be both a fetal pole and a heartbeat. But for various reasons you may be only 5-6 weeks so worth repeating ultrasound to make sure ...Read more

Is it normal to see a fetus on the u/s but no gestional sac and no fetal pole, even if I measure right at 6wk. When I'm 6wk by my last peroid.

Is it normal to see a fetus on the u/s but no gestional sac and no fetal pole, even if I measure right at 6wk. When I'm 6wk by my last peroid.

I'm not sure: I understand the question. The fetal pole is the fetus at an early stage, and it would be impossible to see a fetus without a gestational sac except possibly with fetal demise/abortion. At 6 weeks in a normal pregnancy, the gestational sac and yolk sac should be visible, and the fetal pole may or may not be visible. ...Read more

Lmp 11/1/13. 30 day cycles. U/s 1/20/14 measured fetus 11w4d edd aug 7. U/s 4/22/14 measured 24w5d edd aug 7. When did I conceive? Margin of error?

11/18 +/-: Most women ovulate 14 days prior to their next period. If you are having 30 day cycles consistently, you should ovulate around cycle day 18 +/- 5 days. For you that would have been 11/18. Your fertile interval can be calculated more precisely if you know the length of your longest and shortest period.

Based on the u/s, you would have conceived around 11/13, +/- 7 days. ...Read more
