HI...I will be 20 weeks on sunday. I went for an ultrasound this past tuesday and the technician confirmed that I was 19 weeks 2 days. I am totally losing sleep as she said she could see all organs developed, fluid levels were fine etc. However, she wants me to come back because she couldn't comment on the facial features or stomach as they were not visible to her? due to the position of the baby. I'm freaking out! Is it because how the baby was lying? This is my first...I don't know what to think

Its mainly to do with paper work lol. In the UK we get to keep our maternity notes and for he 20 weeks scan (anomoly) sp?? there is a long list of checks to do, measurements, kidneys, heart ect... Usually here if the baby is lying the wrong way (being stubborn) and the tech can't get clear measurement she wil make another appointment for you to see if she can get a better scan.. Try not to worry :) p.s we are exactley the same in weeks, I will also be 20weeks on Sunday :) I'm 22 and this is my 3rd

what the tech seemed to mean is the baby was lying back to the 'camera' and wouldn't rotate or turn so that they could look at his/her face or belly. Common for this to happen. It's like some babies spread their legs for the camera and others don't. That's usually directly proportional to how much the parents want to know the s_x.

dont worry. it isnt always easy to do comprehensive ultrasounds because the baby wont play ball!
