Question: I'm in 37th week. Yesterday I went to ultrasound scan. In report it is mentioned I'm having upper segment posterior grade 2. What does it means?
Report is normal dear.
Usually the position of placenta is either at side or top if the placenta is attached at the back side of the uterus is posterior placenta, incase of anterior placenta there is some difficulties as it is attached at the front.
The grading is a terminology used in USG's the grade |, ||, ||| denotes how far you have come along in pregnancy or how much used is your placenta.
If you follow your previous reports it would show | or || so thats how its calculated.
Dont worry if there is any problem in your Pregnancy or report your Doctor will speak to you.
Question: Had ultrasound level II test today. Radiologist said everything is fine but in the report suggesed to go for triple marker test. Any idea whether its just routine
Answer: Hello! Triple marker test is just a routine test like double marker test. Triple marker test is the extension of double marker and looks for AFP, hCG, and Estriol.
AFP: alpha-fetoprotein is a protein that is produced by the fetus.
hCG: human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone produced within the placenta
Estriol: estriol is an estrogen produced by both the fetus and the placenta
The triple screen test is performed between the 15th and 20th week of pregnancy. Low levels of AFP and abnormal levels of hCG and estriol may indicate that the developing baby has Trisomy 21, Trisomy 18 or another type of chromosome abnormality.
Question: I went for ultrasound ,nothing was found and then went for hcg test , result is 1428.3, what does it mean
Answer: Dear 1428 hcg count means you are 5 weeks pregnant or somewhere near it. So dont worry get a retest after 24 hours and check the range if its increasing then there is nothing to worry just get a scan at 6 weeks . Hopefully baby can be seen by then. Also consult with a gynaecologist..
