When I went in for ultrasound yesterday the tech could not locate my uterus. She could not get the probe close enough to it. When we watched her trying to find something (she saw my 2 ovaries). She did find the sac but couldn't see anything in it. We were able to se something 4 days earlier. She said there was something in front of my uterus casting a shadow that made it hard to see. My doctor could not tell me anything. She said it was weird. What would cause this?
IF she found the sac, then she must have found the uterus (right?) because the sac should be IN the uterus...this sounds strange...I'd demand the doctor perform the ultrasound again rather than the tech...unless if the doctor can give you a good explanation for the tech's findings. Good luck!
I thought that was weird too that we did see the sac but not baby. We saw the baby 4 days before and my doctor said it just couldn't have disappeared. She could hardley get a pic of the sac with the internal ultrasound. She said she couldn't reach it? I go back Monday for another HCG count. When will I get the results. This will be my second? Thanks!
i dont think the bladder being full or empty should make a ultrasound tech not be able to find the uterus!!!! how can she not find it? that sounds very odd.
plus, my doctors have never told me to have a full or empty bladder when having an ultrasound - either vaginally or abdominally. I have had different doctors/perinatologist give me ultrasounds - but never one done by an ultrasound tech.
