Pregnancy Long Case M.P is a 44 year old woman who presents at 39+5 gestation. Section 1 Task 1 Obstetric History Current Pregnancy History of Presenting Complaint Planned induction of labour on the 28/7/15 Gestational age of the fetus M.P’s first day of her last menstrual period (LMP) was the 20/11/2014. The estimated date of delivery (EDD) was determined using Naegele’s rule, which calculated EDD as the 27/8/15. This was refuted by an ultrasound at 8 weeks gestation to measure crown rump length (CRL). This measure predicts gestation accurately with a range of ± 4 days. EDD determined from CRL of 61mm was the 29/7/15 (gestation 122). Further parameters measured at 14 weeks such as head circumference, abdominal circumference and femur length provided a composite estimate of age. The current gestation at the time of the first visit was 39+5. History of current pregnancy M.P had a planned pregnancy. Having decided to start a family with her husband whom she had recently married, M.P stopped taking the oral contraceptive pill. However, M.P did not regain her periods, with a total cessation of periods for 12 months. Consulting a fertility specialist, she was diagnosed with early menopause. Determined to have a child, but having undergone anovulation, a friend of M.P’s offered to donate eggs to the couple. These donor eggs were then used in the IVF process. IVF involves a total of 3 steps: oocyte retrieval from the egg donor which is stimulated by recombinant FSH
