    Good morning. Craving agbalumo is very common in pregnancy. So it's nothing to worry about. Just make such to wash it very well and avoid the rotten ones. It will not affect your baby. Also keep up with your antenatal visits. Take care

    When can I do scan to know the sex of my baby . my legs aches a lot. What can u do for it to stop

    Hello. It would depend on how good the ultrasound machine is. Some pick sex as early as 12-14weeks. But you can check from 20wks. Try not to stand for long periods. Elevate your legs to encourage good blood and lymph drainage. Take care

    Goodmorning doctor, please I want to kno more about low line placenta. I just did a scan and I was told I have a low line placenta. Does it mean I can't go into labour myself and what are the causes? 8Can it still change position?
    Dr. Ogechi M answered:

    Hello. Low lying placenta means that the placenta is attached to the lower segment of the uterus close to the cervix. The cervix is the neck of the womb through which the baby will pass during delivery. When the placenta lies close to this area or sometimes even covering it, this can cause bleeding before or during Labour. Depending on the severity, a cesarean section may be advised. I don't want to cause panic for you though. Please discuss the ultrasound report with your obstetrician. Take care
