    Default Bub hard to see in Ultrasound

    I had OB appointment this morning, I'm 14.5weeks... I was expecting another boring appointment until he couldn't get a clear picture of Bub... he tried for a while, got me to roll on my side but still couldn't get a very clear picture so wants me to get another ultrasound before Christmas (booked it for 16th Dec so hubby can come) I'm trying very hard not to freak out... the doctor had trouble at our NT week scan getting a clear image as well but was able to check everything needed... I asked my OB if he was concerned about anything & he said no just puzzled.... Bubs was moving around a lot that we could see & I've started feeling it a little so I'm not worried about that side of things... But with 9 days to wait, I'll be checking the Doppler a few times a day I reckon till then! The worst part is he didn't even hint at what he was 'checking' for so I have nothing to google!! My other 2 where very boring normal pregnancies so this has thrown me for six!

    Anyone had this? I'm a 'bigger' girl but smaller than the previous pregnancies & never had an issue before viewing bubs, placenta is at the back so not in the way... any ideas?

    @AmyEL do you have a retroverted (tilted) uterus by any chance?

    Its awful when they leave you with a bit of uncertainty. The fact that bub was moving alot is a huge positive. Bub was obviously just comfy hanging out in a hard to see spot.

    Not sure, can you have a tilted uterus with one pregnancy & not another? Or is it always like that? This is pregnancy number 3 & haven't had an issue in the past.

    My first i did and current bub i didnt, so i think so. Can you get in contact with your OB in the meantime to find out if he is concerned, that way if he isnt it will ease your mind and help you not to worry for the next 9 days?

    From what I've read it can change from pregnancy to pregnancy... surely it should have been picked up at my NT if that's the case... I'll see how I go with my anxiety as to whether I contact OB for more of an explanation... I have a busy few days before hubby gets home on 14th so hopefully I can get thru that way!!

    Did your OB say where the position of your placenta is? I know with DD3 it was at the front which made it really difficult to see things even at a 20 weeks scan.
    As for a tilted uterus, I didn't know I had one until I was pregnant with #5..

    Posterior so not in the way of ultrasound... with a tilted uterus it can change over time, so probably why you didn't know till #5

    All good, think bubs had just found a good hiding spot! Such a relief!
