  • I haven't had this problem but make sure to ask what the original concern was about, that way at least you know and wont be thinking the worst...

  • Did they tell you why you were having another ultrasound? I had one because I was measuring big and they mainly did measure my fluid. Turned out I had extra. When is your next appt? Your doctor should go over the ultrasound with you.

  • No, my pregnancies are ultrasound-free.
    You are wondering about what the nurse was worried about?

    I think it's good to work on "being present" at your appointments, be aware, and ask your questions while there-- IF you can!
    Easier said than done, sure.
    But any time you wonder about anything, just ask.
    You can call later if you need to.
    But do it.
    At lease make a note and ask next time~

  • i did ask bc i was concerned that all she was measuring was the fluid, and the only response i got was like a distant "yea its normal" and more measurements. and the reason i had this ultra sound done is my doc had said he just wanted to see how much the baby is growing{so it would make sense to measure the baby right?!}
