  • I've never heard that. I know that when you're really early in your pregnancy, they usually do a vaginal ultrasound instead of one on your stomach.

  • well maybe i should find another doctor she wasnt pressing all that hard on my stomach trying to find the baby which included her not seeing him

  • I'm over weight myself and they were able to see my kids when I was pregnant. They will try it vaginally and on the belly. Just be prepared to drink LOTS and LOTS of water and NOT pee.

  • I have never heard of this either ... I would get a second opinion. I am overweight and had no trouble seeing either of my children in early pregnancy...
