I had an ultrasound yesterday. 12wks. And the nurse said the Dr wasn't in bc he had an Emergency at the hosp. She went on for 5 min about how she doesn't know how to do ulrasounds, and how shes not trained for that, and doesn't know the machine.
All of my ultrasounds (every 2wks) so far have been the internal kind with the dr. (not on top of the belly yet.) Never any pain after, and that seems more invasive. Well, she was using the dopplar to find the heartbeat - which she never found. The she used the belly kind of ultraound machine. She was pushing it down all over my lower belly area. and found the baby - which was great. but then she was like well now we know exactly were the baby is so lets try the heartbeat thing again.... and she said if she pushed all over my belly hard, it would make the baby go to the front of my uterus. nothing hurt at the time, but i was up all night .

Why are you having so many ultrasounds? What problem are they watching you for? Not that it matters because we can't diagnoses anything anyway. But it isn't normal to have so many ultrasounds. 1 maybe 2 per pregnancy is normal. Most women seem to be having them at 18-20 weeks unless there is something suspicious going on. So what is up that you have had several at only 12 weeks? And sorry I can't help you with your pain question, but I would call and ask the doctor.

Jealous of being unnecessarily poked and prodded? Do you think we don't already have kids, can't get pregnant or something. Why would ANYBODY be jeaolous of somebody who is either high risk and needs all these ultrasounds or is low risk and going to a doctor who is a quack. Make no sense to me!
