Hi Ladies. I am now 20 weeks pregnant. I had gone for an ultrasound and had a bit of a scare. Technicial said she couldn't see stomach or face so i'm wandering if this is normal...by the way, this is my first so i'm a little scared. Also, ihaven't really felt a defininte kick or anything like that??? Very worried now....

Krissy, I wouldn't worry about it. I'm guessing the baby was very active and not cooperating. Also, the tech may not be that experienced. I would be extremely surprised if the baby survived 20 weeks without a stomach or face. I am also 20 weeks with my first and haven't felt any movement either. They told me I have an anterior placenta (it attached up front), so it could take longer before I feel movement. We heard the heartbeat last Friday, so I know the little bean is still in there. I know it's difficult, but try not to worry.

I had an utlrasound at 18 weeks and we can see his stomach and face just fine. But like Cali said the baby may not have been cooperating. My little guy hates ultrasounds and fetal heart monitors. At the ultrasound he kept putting his hands over his face and kicking for us to leave him alone. Let us know what happens. I'm now 21 weeks and this is my first too : )

Krissy... If you're worried I'd call your doctor. Did he/she not see you after the ultrasound? My doctor(s) encourage me to call if I have ANY concerns or questions. As Cali said, I bet it's just that the tech was inexperienced.
