User:Hello Dr..
User:Hi, MY LMP : was on 1st XXXXXXX 2013 and my menstral cycle is irregular from 45-50 days duration. Hence my scanning date have come up around 28th Oct 2013. So until when can I wait for pains.. and also is it that after 18th October I should opt for ceserian if i dont get pains?
Doctor:according to your LMP, your due date is october 8 2013
Doctor:it is better to go by the scan always
Doctor:as it is more accurate
User:. Today that is on 18th October I had a check up. It seems that my baby head has not moved down yet. Hence I have been advised to wait for 3 days (until Monday 21st October)else go for ceserian. But since My scanning date has 28th October I want to wait until then. Can you please suggest me further on this, as Im little worried.
Doctor:do not be worried
Doctor:it happens
Doctor:in my view, you should wait until monday
Doctor:and if things do not turn better, then you could opt for ceasarian
Doctor:there is no point is waiting until 28 if the baby is matured now
User:so if my baby head doesnt move down by monday ie on 21st october
User:should i opt for ceserian
