The dr told my husband & i that are baby is breeched the bpd is 3.76cm should we be concered accoring to the ultrasound the g.a is 17w3d9d ?
No worries: It is not at all usual for a baby to be in a breech position during the second trimester. Your baby still has plenty of room and plenty of time to turn over. The position of the fetus is always reported on ultrasound, but is not really reason for concern until the baby is getting bigger and close to delivery. Don't worry. If the ultrasound findings are normal, you are blessed. ...Read more
If my baby was breech at my last two ultrasounds does that mean she will stay like that I am 23 weeks now?
Breech at 23 weeks..: Good news! breech at 23 weeks in no way predicts final presentation. She will be flipping/ turning more times than you will care to count over the next months and has lots of time to get into the ideal head first presentation before delivery! congratulations, and make that prenatal visit with pediatricians in your area if you don't have one picked out so you can find the right fit for you and baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Cs delivery due to breech on my first child , now 8 months. Preggy had an ultrasound and babys position headdown is it going to be normal delivery?
Maybe,maybe not: Vaginal delivery after cs is possible but must be approached with a plan for both possibilities.Here a woman is watched through labor and if progressing well, will deliver from below. If there is any slow down or problems identified the delivery is planned with a double setup, wherein both natural delivery or conversion to surgical delivery can be done in minutes. ...Read more
Ultrasound today at 17 weeks 6 days pregnant showed baby is in frank breech position. Should I be worried?
It depends: If your breech baby is delivered by cesarean section , there is probably no significant issues. Sometimes the baby will have been in that position for a considerable time and may have early issues with hips, but not usually. The increased risk comes from vaginal birth, since the last part to deliver is the head. And with twins delivered vaginally, the second twin is often delivered as a breech. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very risky: Among breech babies, >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks spontaneously. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME. All breech babies should be delivered via C-Section b/c the risk of vaginal delivery is too great (head entrapment and fetal death due to cord compression). Only in RARE situations are vaginal deliveries performed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
