what did they do at you ultrasound?

i had my ultrasound and they mesured everything the baby had. her head, bones, feet, kidneys, brain, heart, lips, nose. i am talking EVERYTHING! My u/s was about an hour long to do both babies. Did they do this because i am havieng twins or is this what they normaly do now? It has been 5 years since my last child. I am 20 weeks.

  • they just looked at everything on me. It took about 25 mins. they did measure him. It took so long cause he was being difficult and would not give us a good BOY picture.

  • Nope thats normal. The measure EVERYTHING! The bones give them an idea how much baby is growing and how far along you are. Kidneys and stuff to make sure they are developing okay, the measure the fluid, the 2 halfs of the brain, 4 quadrants of the heart, so on and so on. It can take a while, especially if you are carrying double!
