For my fetus, all my usg were normal till 30 weeks. Now at 32 weeks it shows that fetus has pyelectasis at 8.2 mm. Can pyelectasis develop so suddenly?
Fetal growth is fast: The fetus is constantly growing rapidly and logarithmically to become the little baby you get to see at the end of 9 months from being a single celled embryo. By 3 weeks many of the eyes, ears, and such are already developed. So, the rest is occurring at rapid pace. It's amazing how automatically the human fetus is programmed to develop perfectly as time moves on. There are even neonatal surgeons! ...Read more

I am 32 weeks pregnant and I wanted to know how accurate a fetal fibronectin test was and if there was a physical way to know if your water breaks?
Negative: Fetal Fibronectin is very accurate when the test is negative. At 32 weeks, if FFN is negative and cervical length is > 3.5cm then the chances of preterm delivery is 7%. Did your doctor measure your cervical length as well? If cervical length is 2.6-3.5 and FFN negative then chance of preterm delivery is 13%. Amnisure is a great test to rule out if your water has broken, or nitrazine with fern ...Read more

Ask your OB!: I assume this was confirmed by ultrasound. Many factors can contribute to a baby who's "small for gestational age." Poor maternal nutrition, some medications, a placenta that's not functioning properly, health conditions like smoking and high blood pressure are all possibilities. It's critical that you discuss this with your OB so that the cause (s) can be identified and, hopefully, treated. ...Read more
