Hello Nunik, thank you for your question
The mean pregnancy lasted 280 days or 40 weeks. If you consider you have a regular menstrual cycle every 28 days, with the HPHT (first day of last menstruation) on 07/09/2017, then the HPL (expected day of birth) is around 14/06/2018. Thus, you are currently around 35-36 weeks pregnant. (Please calculate your gestational age using the gestational age calculator).
One of the conditions for spontaneous vaginal delivery is that there is no obstruction in the birth canal (starting from the cervix / cervix to the vagina). Placenta previa totalis is a condition in which the placenta (placenta) covers the cervical opening. Therefore, in patients with placenta previa totalis who cannot give birth normally, it is recommended to undergo labor by caesarean section.
The closer to the end of pregnancy, the uterus will contract more often. This is what is often called his fake. Although they are not actual contractions, they can also potentially cause bleeding in patients with placenta previa totalis. Given this risk, the obstetrician through an ultrasound examination will consider a caesarean section without waiting for the gestational age at term (less than 37 weeks). Of course, it is most appropriate if you discuss this with an obstetrician who examines you directly. The doctor will decide the best treatment for you and the fetus in the womb.
However, you need to understand the risks of preterm birth for your baby:
babies born with a low body weight (less than 2500 grams) have the potential for long-term disease (for babies born after 32 weeks, this risk is less than 10 percent) low body temperature at birth sometimes have respiratory problems Premature babies tend to need more care longer in hospital than normal babies. However, with a good evaluation of the obstetrician and pediatrician, it is likely that the outcome will be good. Don't hesitate to discuss this with your gynecologist.
Hopefully this is useful
