Brief Answer: you can wait till term if baby is ok Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. In first pregnancy fetal head gets entered in pelvic cavity after 38 weeks & if it gets eneterd in cavity you can take trial of labour, If your are getting good fetal movements means greater than 12 movements per day you can wait till labour pains or till 25th January. But you would have to undergo CTG ( cardiotocography) twice weekly. Whether cord is loose or tight can be detected during ultrasound by radiologist. In preterm condition there are chances that cord gets reversed, however in term pregnancy it is very rare that it will get away. You can undergo trial of labour in higher centre where all facilities are available like cardiotocography machine for continuous fetal heart rate monitoring during labour & well equipped operation theatre where emergency caesarean can be taken at any time. I hope your queries have been answered. Regards,

Brief Answer: Get an ultrasound scan done Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Welcome back. Reversed position means initially downward part of fetus was head, now fetus has rotated & downward part is feet. It is better to get one ultrasound scan done before undergoing any intervention. Take care

Brief Answer: Normal delivery is not possible in breech presenta Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Welcome back. If baby is having feet presentation, normal delivery is not possible. Your baby is having 37 weeks gestation & at this age frequent rotation is not possible. So get one ultrasound scan done to detect exact position of fetus if it is breech means footlings just think about caesarean section & if position is normal means head presentation you can undergo trial of labour. Take care

Brief Answer: Fetus is in normal position Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome back. Fetus is in normal position with adequate amount of liquor & good weight. You can wait for labour pains till 25th January & if still not getting pains you can go for induction of labour. However during labour you would have to be vigilant as there is cord around neck & baby can undergo distress at any time. If there will be fetal distress then you would have to undergo caesarean section. Take care
