My baby is a ninja. He's always jumping around doing martial arts but likes to hide from dopplers and ultrasounds. Sneaky baby.
I've had 7 ultrasounds. (One was because the doppler's batteries died and the u/s machine was right there. All she did was use to establish the heartbeat.) I had 12 u/s with my last pregnancy and unless something crazy happens I don't think we'll make it to that. There is a level of concern due to my endocrine issues and advanced maternal age but overall the doctors seem more chilled out about me than last time. They had me see a different doctor in the practice from 6 months on last time since my doc doesn't deliver anymore and maybe she was just more anxious. That doc was always on me about weight and this time I'm sure I'm tracking exactly the same if not slightly more and my current doctor says great.
I guess I'm okay with u/s because they've told me all good things so far. I have three friends for whom serious issues were detected via u/s and they could put themselves in the best position for care. (This was stuff like polycyctic kidneys and a heart condition that required a pacemaker.) I hate that there is a political implication that we, as women, should have less information, be less informed. I'd want to know and I'm not going to blame the messenger ultrasound.
