Regarding anatomy scans, mine is consider an hour long appointment but usually takes 30-45 minutes. They will not do certain measurements without my bladder full. They will literally do other stuff as they wait for my bladder to be full. Not even kidding.

That totally makes since. If you aren't comfortable, find a place that you are :) . I just thought it was all over an US not being done. That's why I said they prob did it at the ER. My bad :D

Lol I went into mine with a full bladder to the point where when I went to lay back I had serious doubts about holding it in. The tech told me to empty haha.

Damn... I wish. Mine was less than 10. No full bladder. Just a quick thing. They took like 5 pix for us. The double checked the gender, measured the head, the femur and the arm bones. Then they did a quick check on the heart and blood flow and sent me on my way. We are doing a 4D at 28 weeks though because DH is depressed at how short our US have been.

Dang... mine was like, here's the stomach, kidneys, bladder, diaphragm, etc. Counted how many vessels in each of their cords, watched blood flow, measured fluid, estimated their weights. She was fast, though, so it was like flipping through a picture book haha.

Our ultrasound tech we had last week was awesome! She told us everything she was measuring and then even read out the results at the end.

I HATE the full bladder thing. I have bladder issues when not pregnant that should probably be medicated. I literally wake up 4-5 times a night to pee when not pregnant so holding in that much fluid kills me! I am just glad she lets me pee once she gets the measurements that require a full bladder.

What a b***h! I might need one more. I had scar tissue in my uterus last pregnancy from my miscarriages and they have to monitor it to make sure baby doesn't play with it and stuff. If baby got stuck in it that body part would stop growing so it is kinda scary.

lauren: Some days I have more than others.



Lindsey: I asked, he said he got what he needed from the ER. But he's a bit of a dick. I'm calling to get a new OB today anyway.



Mega: I suppose. I guess it was just so unlike my last one and what I heard from everyone else that I was worried.



Thank you but I'm not getting a new Dr because I didn't get a scan. I wanted to change before that but was going to wait until after the scan. Well since I got it, I'm changing. I already complained about him in here and already noted that I wanted to change. I'm not changing because of the scan. It's a lot of other reasons. It could be no reason. He's hired by me. I can fire him for no reason at all. If the new Dr doesn't give me a scan fine. I was only complaining about the scan because I didn't think they COULD get the measurements that fast but ya'll are saying they can so I'm fine with it now.



I've had 3 miscarriages, one of them a late one. I have every right to fret over the health of my baby.

Thanks. I was feeling a little attacked. I already made it clear I wasn't upset about not finding the gender or seeing the scan... I was just worried they didn't see what they needed. Especially when a bunch of other women flipped their shit too... I didn't KNOW they could get it that fast. Since they can, I'm cool again.



I'm still changing though. He's not interested in letting me have the birth I want nor does he listen to me when I talk. He acts like I'm too stupid to know what's going on with my own body. Maybe because I'm on state insurance or because I look young? I don't know, either way, it's not right.
