Pregnancy At 39 Weeks Has Not Yet Entered The Pelvis?
yesterday my wife checked 39 weeks of pregnancy, but from the doctor’s ultrasound our fetus was still not in the pelvis, hpl on May 28, 2019, our doctor suggested surgery but my wife and I still wanted to be born normal because our first child was born normal, our question is whether do you have to wait for surgery to be able to be born normally, what efforts must be made to quickly enter the pelvis, in the past few days it has been attempted to walk a lot. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In women who have given birth before (multipara), generally, the bottom of the fetus has entered the upper door of the pelvis at the age of the womb at the age of 8 months. Of course this is not a standard benchmark. It may be that the fetus enters the pelvic upper door at a faster time, or even longer. It is not yet clear what factors cause this time difference. However, the fetus is slower to enter the upper door of the pelvis usually due to a blockage around the birth canal (for example due to placenta previa, myoma), large fetus, narrow pelvis, or many other factors. Obstetricians who examine your wife directly certainly understand more about your wife's current condition.
Without knowing the condition of your wife and the fetus in the womb directly, of course we are not authorized to determine what steps can be taken to make sure that the fetus can enter the pelvic door, or that labor can be done normally as your wife hopes. Our advice, consult directly with the obstetrician who treats him, or ask for a second opinion by checking with other doctors.
With his experience and competence, the doctor who examines your wife certainly understands what is best for your wife and her fetus. If he recommends a cesarean section, of course because he feels the step is the best. For now, besides discussing directly with the doctor, you can ask your wife to walk and prostrate a lot. According to some literature, this position is good for helping the fetus get down to the pelvic upper door faster.
I hope this helps.
