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

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

With great precision: An early ultrasound is the most precise (+/- 3-5 days until 8 weeks) in the determination of the due date and therefore the fetal age. This declines to +/-5-7 days @8-12 weeks +/-7-10 days @13-23 weeks +/-10-14 days @24-28 weeks +/-14-17 days @29-32 weeks and +/- 17-21 days thereafter. Due to the biological variation of the ovulation date ultrasound <24 weeks is more reliable than last period! ...Read more

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

If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby still change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech babies?

If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby  still  change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech  babies?

Breech presentation: At 35-36 weeks there is still time for your baby to flip and become cephalic (head first). However after 38 weeks or so, it is very unlikely that your baby will flip. If your baby is breech at that time, a c-section is usually scheduled. ...Read more

What can I do if my abdominal ultrasound shows that my baby is in the breech position?

What can I do if my abdominal ultrasound shows that my baby is in the breech position?

Wait it out: Babies do change positions during pregnancy so it could switch by next week. If it doesn't switch naturally, sometimes the OB can try a turning maneuver called a version to turn it., but this has some risks. If you go to full term as a breach expect a surgical delivery. ...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?

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 more

In a pregnancy where the baby is breech, does the doctor try to invert the baby's position?

Maybe: You can either do a version or most likely for what is best for you have an elective c/s for breech. Some patients depending on the number of previous deliveries might even attempt a vaginal delivery. Talk with you OB and a plan of action between you and your OB can be determined. ...Read more

I am 36 weeks preg. And an ultrasound just revealed my baby is breech. What can I do to help her turn around so i can deliver vaginaly?

Not much: You could ask your doctor if he/she is willing to do an external cephalic version. This is a procedure where 1-2 doctors manually attempt to essentially flip your baby. Not all of us still do this. ...Read more

My first ultrasound for pregnancy doc told me there is a nondevelop sac of 4 weeks shd b 6 weeks i went through hCG level its in rang of 5to 6 weeks.

Possible miscarriage: This may be a miscarriage but it is difficult to know for sure this early. You can follow the HCG level for the short term (it should double every 2 to 3 days) and then repeat the sonogram in about a week to clarify the situation. ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant baby still breech. This is my first pregnancy. What are the chances of head down position?

Still Good : Generally, fetal presentation at 32 wks is not indicative of presentation at term, and you have no need to worry at this time. If still breech at 36 weeks gestation, it is likely that the breech will persist. Your provider will discuss the option of version (flipping the fetus) if the breech persists at term. ...Read more

Does having a tipped uterus affect ultrasound for pregnancy? At 4 weeks conception would the dr. See anything?

Does having a tipped uterus affect ultrasound for pregnancy?  At 4 weeks conception would the dr. See anything?

Not really, heart: "tipping" of uterus is how uterus points inside body and doesnt affect pregnancy. It may affect ability of ultrasound to see early in the pregnancy but minimally so. For example, if your uterus is retroverted (pointed to the back) it may make it a little harder for ultrasound to see as uterus is farther from the probe (particularly if theres bowel in the way as well). Can see sac, heart beat. ...Read more

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? Im on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? Im on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results

Hormonal abnormality: The causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are either hormonal or structural (like a fibroid). At your age I would strongly suspect a hormonal problem and not a fibroid. The ultrasound will rule out (or in) the structural abnormality. Do you have PCOS? If the ultrasound is normal your doctor will likely run multiple tests to determine what the hormonal problem is. ...Read more

What is the best way to terminate a breach pregnancy?

What is  the best way to terminate a breach pregnancy?

Find a Specialist: You need to find a specialist to consult with although this gets more difficult once you're over 18 weeks. Try a university practice, planned parenthood, or ask your OB what your options are. If you can't safely receive what you're looking for, one option is to make your baby available for adoption. This is one way to not be responsible for a child & makes a welcome environment for a new baby. ...Read more

Is it ok to have ultrasound free pregnancies?I heard ultrasound can harm unborn children.

Yes: Certainly, you can request not to have any ultrasounds during your pregnancy. However, ultrasound has been used for decades and there are no known consistent health risks to a developing fetus. They are safe. Ultrasound is an easy way to look for potential health issues which may be addressed before delivery, or at least can be anticipated for intervention after delivery. Trust your ob. ...Read more

How common are partial molar pregnancies among Caucasians? Can they be picked up on a an ultrasound at 5 weeks gestation? Possible signs?

How common are partial molar pregnancies among Caucasians? Can they be picked up on a an ultrasound at 5 weeks gestation? Possible signs?

1:1500: The incidence of a molar pregnancy is about 1 in 1500. If you've previously had a molar pregnancy, its about 1 in 150. In early pregnancy, the symptoms are much the same as a normal pregnancy. Sometimes you can have spotting or more severe nausea and vomiting. U/S at 5 weeks is not always reliable for ruling out molar pregnancy. Best wishes! ...Read more
