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?

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

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

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 more

Can transverse baby at 33 weeks pregnant lead to c section?

Can transverse baby at 33 weeks pregnant lead to c section?

Too soon : It's too soon to determine the need for a c section at 33 weeks. Your baby could still change its position over the next 5-6 weeks. If your baby remains transverse or becomes breech late in pregnancy, you will need a c section. However, it is simply too early to tell right now. Discuss this with your obgyn. Good luck! ...Read more

Can baby be breech at 24 weeks?

Can baby be breech at 24 weeks?

Yes: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina. Many reasons why; sometimes baby's size, shape of uterus, rarely it's babies w/ a neuro disorder. >50% flip to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks. OBGYNs can perform a version to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME ...Read more

20 weeks pregnant baby in cephalic position is this normal?

20 weeks pregnant baby in cephalic position is this normal?

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

I am 29 weeks pregnant with complete placenta previa. My baby is in a transverse position. Will this complicate the c-section?

I am 29 weeks pregnant with complete placenta previa. My baby is in a transverse position. Will this complicate the c-section?

Not much: Ob/Gyns are trained for both a transverse lie and a complete placenta previa at the time of c/section. Extra care and some additional maneuvers are needed to deliver the baby but this is not a big deal usually. However, if you have had a previous c/section and now have a previa much more major complications can arise if the placenta is over your old scar. Best wishes! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can your cervix move forward if stuck behind baby head (head is lower than cervix) @ 40 weeks? Will the cervix dialate at all behind baby head

Can your cervix move forward if stuck behind baby head (head is lower than cervix) @ 40 weeks? Will the cervix dialate at all behind baby head

Yes: It appears that you are referring to a posterior cervix which is normal. In a first pregnancy, the baby usually descends early into the pelvis and the cervix being posterior is behind the baby's head. As labor ensues, the cervix will dilate and eventually become mid position and is applied to the baby's head in preparation for delivery. ...Read more

Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?

Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?

Baby moving: At 33 weeks, the placenta isn't likely to move any more, it will stay anterior upper. By 33 weeks, the baby has probably settled in for the term BUT if you've given birth before, there in an increased chance that the baby can still shift around to transverse or breech. This is much less common if it's your first. ...Read more

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Depends: That is a decision that would need to be made in the moment. Many women can deliver vaginally with no problem from the occiput posterior position. If the baby can not be delivered with pushing then options of forceps, vacuum and c section should be considered. The size of the baby, the shape of the pelvis, the position of head and the experience of the doctor are all important considerations ...Read more
