Brief Answer:

You can try for normal delivery.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone through your reports and history in detail.
You can try for normal vaginal delivery as your ultrasound report is normal and you had c- section 3 yrs back.

But as your stress response is positive, you have to repeat the test after 2-3 days under supervision of your treating doctor.

You can wait for labour pain to start till 40 weeks and see the engagement of foetal head etc by pelvic examination of your gynaecologist.

If normal delivery is not happened, you have to go for c - section again.

During trying for normal delivery, you should keep watch on foetal heart rate and well being.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks Doc. After visiting the doc here he asked us to wait a couple of days then further asked for a scanning today again. From our end our objective is we can opt for a normal delivery. I am attaching the reports from todays scan. Can you advice.

Brief Answer:

Yes,you can go for it.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone through your scan report in detail and your report is perfectly fine.

As your baby is 36 weeks, that is why maybe your doctor wants to wait and watch for few more days or they are waiting for natural labour pain.

So you can wait and watch for the same or you can go for induction of labour under the supervision of a doctor and if it fails then you have to go for c- section.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
