?: I don't understand your question.Get a more detailed answer ›
My uterus contains a 6cm fibroid in the posterior myometrium. Does this mean it is inside the uterus - or in the wall of the uterus?
Not enough info ...: The myometrium is the muscular wall of the uterus so most or all of the fibroid is in the wall. Posterior means the back wall of your uterus as opposed to the front. A fibroid in the myometrium may be completely within the wall (intramural) or project into the inside cavity of the uterus (submucosal) or it may be just under the outer covering of the uterus (subserosal). Ultrasound or MRI can tell. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Placenta accreta: Placenta accreta, percreta and increta are increasingly severe conditions where the placenta actually grows into the myometrium, or wall, of the uterus, making detachment at birth difficult if not impossible. Moms with this condition more often than not will require hysterectomies at the time of birth to avoid hemorrhage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thinking normal: No. But, many women will swear that talking to the fetus is beneficial and part of becoming a mother. ...Read more
Late baby: It could be either. We don't completely understand how the signal for going into labor works. Some babies do normally stay in longer. But also it's possible the dates are off. This would more likely be true if a woman DID NOT have an ultrasound during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. ...Read more
At 20 weeks during a 3rd pregnancy, where is the top of the uterus usually located in relation to the belly button with a singleton pregnancy?
No: Babies do not breathe in the womb.There are some random tensing movements of the diaphragm, but no breathing.That starts after a baby is delivered. ...Read more
Is it right that delivering babies comes in the 2nd place after burying alive in terms of the amount of pain?
Gestational Sac: Yes the position of the sac will likely fill the entire center of the uterus as it enlarges. In rare situations, if the sac lands within the cervix or at the cornea of the fallopian tubes, it will,not and this is considered a variation of ectopic pregnancy. But those situations are pretty rare. It's VERY VERY likely the sac will become more central over time as it enlarges. ...Read more
What does an ultra sound that says normal uterus but very heterogeneous with a few poorly defined fibroids mean?
May mean adenomyosis: Difficult to say for sure. You should discuss findings with your doctor. I often see pelvic ultrasounds describe significant heterogeneity which is due to adenomyosis but called fibroids instead. They are both benign conditions and both cause similar symptoms (and you could even have both). A pelvic MRI is a good way to answer this but first talk to your doctor to explain the results. ...Read more

No.: Not at all. In fact, it's almost guaranteed, given the length of the cord and how little space there is, that the cord is all around the baby. If the cord is in someways compromised, i.e., if it is pinched in there somewhere, it would result in decreased baby movements. You can take an active baby as a good sign. ...Read more
20 weeks.: A baby can start kicking at anytime, the real question is when you should expect to feel the baby's movements. It's called quickening and it happens at around 18-20 weeks. People who've been pregnant before will often feel it earlier. Any earlier than that and it's probably indigestion. ...Read more
