23yo female last pregnacy resulted in a stillbirth at 38weeks placenta stopped working. Preg again wagt are the chances of happening again?

Difficult to say: It would depend on why the "placenta stopped working". Was there any testing done? Any evidence of diabetes, uncontrolled blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, blood clotting disorder, etc? Having more information would be helpful in answering that question. None-the less extra vigilance during a subsequent pregnancy is required. Early testing, ultrasounds, etc. Good Luck! ...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

I had an stillbirth at 20th week of pregnancy on oct 13th, will i have difficulty in conceiving again? Wat i need to do?

Not necessarily: If you haven't had trouble conceiving in the past there is no reason this would increase the risk in the future but your doctor does need to look into the reason for the still birth to try to keep it from recurring. Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy next time. ...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

I delivered stillbirth during 24 week due to pressure..What are the preventive measure to take before next pregnancy?

Exercise: If by "pressure" you mean elevated blood pressure or preeclampsia, the best you can do is to get fit and exercise. Make sure you're at a healthy weight as well. You can check your bmi to see what that weight would be. Exercise, though, is the best way to bring blood pressure down. You may need medication? Talk with your md about that. Exercise is free and effects are long lasting! ...Read more

At 30 wks ultrasound there is a single loop of umbilical cord loosely entwining baby's neck..is there any risk?.what are the chances of stillbirth?

At 30 wks ultrasound there is a single loop of umbilical cord loosely entwining baby's neck..is there any risk?.what are the chances of stillbirth?

Chances low: It is not uncommon to have the cord around the neck before birth. It may become disentangled naturally. Sometimes during labor if the cord is around the neck the infant may have fetal distress that can be picked up by fetal monitoring during labor. I would not be too worried right now as long os the fetus shows signs of movement. Your OB doc can follow this during the pregnancy. ...Read more

I just had a stillbirth delivery at 38 weeks, first pregnancy , no know cause. How long should I wait to get pregnant again?

I just had a stillbirth delivery at 38 weeks, first pregnancy , no know cause. How long should I wait to get pregnant again?

Give it some time: Speak to your obstetrician and make sure that all aspects have been evaluated for the stillbirth. If there was a compromise in the umbilical cord that may potentially give an answer. Also chromosomal evaluation may be helpful along with familial thrombophilia clotting studies. Allow yourself and your partner to grieve the death of the child before jumping into the next pregnancy. Make sure that all potential causes have been evaluated before attempting another pregnancy. I personally would have my patient waited at least 4 to 6 months before trying again. ...Read more
