My last two ultrasounds have been miserable. My heart races, I get lightheaded, and I start burning up. I feel so close to passing out.
Three weeks ago at a growth u/s, we had to stop every 3 minutes so I could turn on my side. That was the longest hour of my life. I was so tired and sick afterwards that it took me two days to return to normal.
At this weeks cervical length, they did a quick check abdominally just to look at the heartbeats. The tech propped up the back of the table for me so I wouldn't be lying flat on my back, but I still had to take two breaks in that short time to calm my body down.
Is anyone else dealing with this? I'm terrified of my next growth u/s on Valentine's Day. The babies will be bigger by then and will put even more strain on my blood flow. I want to spend the time looking at my boys and not worrying about how I feel. Have any of you been able to have u/s done while lying on your side the entire time? I think I'd like to try that if the tech is willing. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated.
