Hi,
the opinion of gynac is that baby not settled down i.e. still head is not engaged.
One cause is that placenta is low down and not allowing baby's head down.There are other causes by which baby's head is not engaged.
There are all chances of going for Caeserin section.(C.S.operation)

Hi
If the baby is coming by the head (cephalic), then it can come down into the pelvis during labour. But if you mean by ' upper side' that it is upside down (Breech), then you need to deliver abdominally ( C-section ). I hope I understood your question right
thanks

Ive had no historical medical problems. I mentioned to the doc that my husband and I are trying to conceive, he said he sees no difficulty but to me this isn't normal, please help.

Hi, I did not get my period last June which is unusual to me because it's on a regular basis. I took two pregnancy test, both got two lines though the second line is a faint one. I went to an OB and she confirmed I was positively pregnant. I was scheduled for Transvaginal Ultrasound but it showed an empty uterus, only thickened endometrium. If this would be of any help as a basis on your answer, my last sexual encounter (unprotected) was June 14 and I am not really very aware of when I ovulate. My LMP was from May 23 - 26 or 27. Thank you in advance.
