U/S pics ?

So after studying the ultrasound pictures i am freakinf out because i only see her one arm. Her but is up in the air and head down on the side view one and i cant see her arms! But on another she is face up and i can see a hand in her mouth. Would the tech have said something if they saw a problem? The only thing she didt get was the top of her head bc she was so active in there. Help!! Stressing!!

  • The ultrasound beam goes through the baby if you will so that you are looking at only half of the baby at one time. Imagine slicing an apple in two...then taking one half and turning it sothat you can see the inside of that half. That is the same idea of

  • I can never make out what the heck I am looking at on a u/s. They would tell you if they thought something was wrong though.
