User:after 2-3 days will get a it a right?
Doctor:I believe the doctor talked about amniocentesis.
User:no...what was that??
Doctor:Amniocentesis is puncturing the amniotic cavity to test the fluid.
User:is it a harmful??
Doctor:* this test is done for testing purpose and not inducing labour pain.
User:now the baby weight is 3.5 kgs
User:i wish to give a normal delivery
Doctor:In such case, I believe the doctor would perform a repeat ultrasound scan to known amniotic fluid level.
User:because day by day weight will increasing
Doctor:This scan by itself does not induce labour pain.
User:so....tell me when did get a delivery pains??
User:and wanted to know a gender of a baby??
Doctor:Gender of baby is impossible to guess.
User:oh ok\
Doctor:And as far as when will she get labour pain, this again is not predictable.
Doctor:But what I can say is that if she does not develop normal labour pains within the fixed period (2 weeks before or after expected due date)
Doctor:there are means to induce normal labour pain
Doctor:only if it is feasible.
Doctor:If it is not feasible then C - section would be the treatment.
Doctor:Hope it is clear to you.
