The Cause Of The Baby’s Position Changed Does Not Enter The Pelvis When 37 Weeks Pregnant?
Good night … my pregnancy is 37-38 weeks
Hello Tonno, Thank you for your question.
In general, the position of the baby in the womb can still change during pregnancy. Along with the growth of the baby in the womb, over time the baby's movements will become more limited due to limited space in the womb. When approaching labor, the baby's head will start to be under and enter the pelvis. However, when the baby's head enters the pelvis varies. Most of the baby's head will enter the pelvis after reaching 38-42 weeks' gestation.
The narrow size of the pelvis cannot be ascertained only by the drop of the baby's head into the pelvic area. A baby's head that hasn't come down to the pelvis can indeed be caused by a narrow size of the pelvis but this condition can also be caused by other conditions such as a large amount of amniotic fluid. To find out the size of a narrow pelvis is needed direct examination by a midwife or obstetrician. The narrow size of the pelvis can be one of the complications of a normal delivery because the size of a narrow pelvis will be difficult for babies to pass when labor occurs. The risk of prolonged labor or loss will also be higher. In addition, this condition can also cause health problems in infants.
Please do a regular check up according to the time of the examination recommended by your midwife / obstetrician. You can also ask the midwife who is checking you about the size of your pelvis.
Hopefully this information helps you.
