I had my ultrasound done this morning for my first trimester screening. I was so excited to see the baby moving all over the place and jumping around. Unfortunately this movement did not work for the ultrasound tech. She would make comments about wow this one is a jumper and this one is so stubborn because she could not get the pics she needed for the doctor. She decided to BUMP the baby around to get my little peanut to cooperate with her. She put the probe thingy on my belly and pushed it up and down really hard and really fast. She continued to do this for the next 10 minutes! I finally had enough when I was watching the screen and could see my baby being shaken around in there. She said don't worry the baby is protected in there and is not getting hurt.
I don't understand how that could be ok for the baby if you can see them shaking all around... Finally she decided she could not get the pictures she needed and got another tech to come in who was able to finish up right away.
Please tell me if I am overreacting due to hormones but I was so angry. Now all I can think about it the shaking baby syndrome and my little one isn't even out yet!
Sorry for the rant but you wait so long for an ultrasound and it stinks when you can't even enjoy it!!
Thanks for listening
