doctor ..how r u
I have a anxious query for you, need help
Please ask me
my wife now at 39 weeks, the due date is 20 aug as per doctor. yesterday we did a routine check up- it seems the babys head is not dropped down, its high up. also she has get any sign of labour now. what should be our next step??
has not get any sign of labor...
You could wait until 40 weeks
But not more than that
It is better to do a elective CS
means completion of 40 th week
what is elective CS
it is better to go for caesarian section instead of waiting
If your wife can wait one more week it is fine
If not proceed with elective CS
The doctor will plan a CS for your wife
There is no need to get labour pains
The baby can be delivered in OT
what is full form of CS
but there is no problem doing CS without labour pain
any reason why heads are not down to pevis...
i saw many blogs..ppl say they used to wait till 41 weeks, the babys head dropped down during that time when labour started..
how the above statement is true and safe
If the head is not in the pelvis, then it is ok
We can wait up to 40 weeks
Since your wife has completed 39 weeks, there is no need to wait further
She could go in for CS
13-19 is 39th week
The medical technology is advance and effective today
is there any long term side effect for CS delivery for mother?
nothing in these days where every procedure is safe
Some mothers do get back ache for a few months after the CS
It goes away in 6 months time
also there would be a chance for normal delivery for 2nd time ,if we go CS for first
there is a definite chance
I have seen in my experience many cases where first delivery was CS and second was normal
my doctor has advised that tomorrow she will do a scan for amino fulide check up. based on that she will suggest if heads are down then can go for normal else will do c on 19 th..
do you suggest that 19 would be too early for it
rather than waiting till 40th week
If I were the treating doctor, I would put your wife for elective CS in a couple of days
Are you done with the chat?
so you advise 19th would be fine ,it by 18th the baby has not dropped down..
lastly, what all casuses for which baby is not droping down till late...
thank for your time, this is my last query
Inadequate liqour or more liquor or fluid in the womb
Both can prevent the head from dropping
Liquor is the white fluid in which the baby floats inside the womb
If it is less or more, both will prevent the babys head from dropping
Hope this is clear to you
ok thanks for your time
Stress is not associated with dropping of the head
bye for now
