Is travelling safe during pregnancy? - Online Doctor Chats
am XXXXXXX wife
Please proceed with your query.
am 34 weeks pregnant.... planning to go to XXXXXXX for delivery... so will be travelling this saturday
my gyno has suggested to take a scan before i travel...
That's a good move.
just want to know whether.. whether i can take the scan at my native
Where are you currently located?
I agree with your gynecologist opinion.
Generally travelling is not a major concern, but since you are close to term, its always better to perform the scan before the travel.
am staying at XXXXXXX
You can get the scan done now before the travel.
Do you have any other questions?
also want to know from wn can we expect baby to be born'
If you have EDD dates from your first scan
you can expect labor to start on those days +/- 2 weeks.
But I tell my patients to be prepared for delivery once they complete 36 weeks.
So that's in another 2 weeks from now.
Have you followed?
ok... my EDD date as per calculation is Aug 19... whereas in the scan it is mentioned as aug 15
ok.. so i can start expecting from 36 weeks
August 15 EDD is based on your first scan right?
Once you finish 36 weeks, you enter term pregnancy.
That indicates you should start preparing.
And if I have to be very precise, Aug 15 +/- 2 weeks will be the more closer dates.
ok.. but want to know y is this diff of date scan vs calculation
Dating scan is based on measurements of your baby - as documented by the sonographer, therefore there is always a difference of +/- 2 weeks.
In other words, EDD based on dating scan is in a range of over 2 weeks.
EDD calculated based on Negli's formula (period date) is a rough estimation when you will reach 40 weeks.
So for all practical purposes we use EED based on dating scan.
Have you followed?
ok... got it
Do you have any more queries?
also my doc so far has not told anything about baby weight...
You can check for yourself.
Is there any other question?
ok.. thanks doc
tats all for nw
