Question: M 35 weeks 5 days pregnant. My AFI is less . It is 8cm . What are the chances of normal delivery.
Answer: Hi dear, Amniotic fluid index(AFI),should be anywhere between 10- 18. Ideally 12 is good. But since your level is borderline,I would advice you to consult doctor.as high AFI could make the normal delivery difficult and you could deliver through c section .also low AFI could give you preterm delivery. low AFI has few reasons: 1- birth defects,which could give kidney problems or urinary tract issues in baby 2-placental problem.if the placenta is not providing enough nutrition to baby,then baby would stop recycling fluid 3-if mother has fluid early leakage 4- maternal complications like diabetes,high BP 5- dehydration Risks: 1- baby could not develop lungs and muscles well.as from second trimester,baby starts to swallow the fluid and recycle it 2- increased chance of miscarriage or still birth 3-preterm birth Treatment: 1- plenty of fluids to be taken.barley water is good in such conditions. 2- some cases IV fluids are administered 3- injecting fluids through amniocentesis 4- amnio infusion through catheter during labor

Question: I have fibroid about 8cm am 27 week pregnant any chances. For normal delivery
Answer: Hi Dear! Incase of fibroids size is important, fibroids usually don't pose a problem in conceiving but the only thing they can grow in size and sometimes block the vaginal delivery path, and the only option is surgery to remove fibroid if its within the uterine cavity which could block the path, otherwise there is no issue in conceiving but an 8 cm fibroid can be a problem and surgery might be suggested.. Hope this helps!
