  • Had a repeat ultrasound today at 27w5d and got a frontal face shot. They were checking placenta placement for a low lying placenta but I haven’t got the results yet. He was an active little dude and was head down, so that’s good. I almost passed out during the ultrasound though! Being flat on my back must have been compressing my inferior vena cava. Has anyone had this happen to them at a later term ultrasound?

  • @babyrummom cute face shot! Yes, I almost passed out at my last ultrasound. I had no idea that was even a thing, but our tech said it's very common.
  • @babyrummom yes! At my last ultrasound I was on my side for most of it cause I kept getting dizzy/nauseous on my back. Tech said very common with later ultrasounds. 
  • @doraleigh35 and @mandarenee898 I had always heard about the possibility of getting lightheaded when being flat on my back, but it never happened to me until the ultrasound! I also work at the hospital I was getting it done at and all I could think of when I was getting nauseous and woozy was, I hope they don’t have to call a code and my coworkers hearing a code in radiology and knowing I just went up there! 
  • 28 week US today, no profile pics because she wouldn't cooperate and kept turning her head inward. 

    They're sending me to specialist for a fetal echocardiogram. They said that on some angles everything was looking great, and on some angles, her stomach seemed to be too high into the chest, and then there were some angles they just couldn't get. While they said this is just to make sure, I'm really anxious and not taking it well. Doesn't help that it will be at least 2-3 days until I get a call from the specialist and then who knows how long before I can schedule to go in for the second test. 

    Other than that she looked good (or so they said...) and she was measuring a little over 3 lbs which puts her in the 77th percentile. 

    Ugh i'm just feeling really crummy about it all though.  
  • @danibean19 That would make me anxious too not knowing, but good they are taking all precautions. Good luck with your echocardiogram <3

    @literatureandink That looks like such a grown up baby!!!!

  • @danibean19 easier said than done but try not to worry. Like @korthouse said, they’re playing it safe which is good because it means you and baby are getting such great care! Keep us updated! ❤️

  • @danibean19 I know it’s hard, but try not to worry until you have the echo. I’m getting a fetal echo on Tuesday due to the 2 vessel cord and my own heart condition. It’s scary, but I know it’s just a precaution. Hoping you get great results at the echo.

    @danibean19 Baby girl was also being super stubborn yesterday at my fetal echo. I was pressed, prodded, moved around, she was comfy snuggled up in there. Finally gave in and gave them the pictures they needed but JEEZ I'm in for it when she's an outside baby!

    Edited to say: I'm so happy you also had good results! :-)

  • @fitzandgiggles DH has a fairly large nose. When I was pregnant with DS, we noticed a substantial looking nose on an early ultrasound. Until we found out he was a boy, we were a bit nervous.

  • @fitzandgiggles I hear you on the nose! Our baby appears to have my nose and it’s such a relief! Lol

  • Funny you guys mention noses. Both DH and I have distinct nose shapes, mine being the big one.  With each kid we've been able to tell in the u/s who's nose they have.
