I am plus sized and had a 4d us at about 20 weeks. We got to see a lot although our little guy didn't want to cooperate when the time came to get pics lol. Here is one of the good ones we got.
He didn't want any pics straight on but we got a few profiles.
I am plus sized and have had regular ultrasounds throughout my pregnancy (high risk.. just u/s at dr. office).. I dont think it matters that you are overweight.. it does matter how the baby is positioned though for u to get a good pic. At stork vision they try for 30 minutes and if they dont get a good pic u are SOL unless u wanna reschedule for 50 more bucks and try again. at least that's how it is here
That's really mean of them! If you give a do-over for some they should give a do-over to all. I can't imagine someone telling me im too fat to have an ultrasound done! I would be so sad!!
Quoting RhondaVeggie:I haven't had one because there was no medical reason for me to do so but I do know that several of the elective places around here have rules about plus size women. Basically if they can't get a good shot normally they will give you a do-over but if you have too much belly fat that could be preventing them from getting a good picture they won't redo you for free.
I am 'plus sized', my BMI is about 30..........I have had 5 3D scans, twice with Ds2 & three with Dd but then my BMI was more like 34-37 & it was clear as day except for placenta issues with Dd because it was anterior!
I only had transvaginal u/s til about 11 wks with them, then it was transabdominal only!
Ds2 at 24 wks
Ds2 at 32 wks (he was too low to see much)
Dd at 16 wks
Dd at 24 wks
Dd at 33 wks
I am plus size and did both sons 3D/4D at 24 weeks and it was fine... I will show you pics
No, I have never had any ultrasounds in my pregnancies. Do you feel something is not well or do you have concerns?
