Didn't see stomach in ultrasound scan 19w. this happento you?

Doc said not to worry because everything else looks great but he will have to do another ultrasound in the future. He said it could've been the position but since everything else is there its not much of a concern... Of course, now i'm worried. Anyone go through this?

  • Doctors should know that we expectant mommies will worry about almost everything... tell him to poke the baby and look again.

  • I don't understand what you are saying or asking.

  • Are you saying that the baby may not have a stomach? I have never had that happen before, but as the doctor said it could have been the position of your little one. Try not to stress. Hopefully the next ultrasound will ease your worries. Good luck mama!

  • not to scare u but yes my sisters youngest was born with out a stomach and his kidneys inside out but he had a birth defect detected at her first blood work and ulrasound so i wouldnt worry if the doctor says everything else looks good i would just make sure they look again b/c they tryed to tell me my son had only one kidney but 2wks later when he was sitting def u could see both!

  • I did a little research and apparently they can't see a stomach if its empty so hopefully its as simple as that.
