Too Many Ultrasounds?
Find a Conversation

So I need some advice.....I had my 3rd Ultrasound today.
1st Ultrasound was at 6 1/2 weeks because I was spotting and we wanted to make sure everything was okay. We paid out the nose for this one, because it was at the hospital and not the clinic.
2nd Ultrasound was at 18W 6D - This was our "20 week" ultrasound and we found out she was girl and but the tech couldn't see her heart, Diaphragm and her lips. Found out I had an Anterior Placenta.
3rd Ultradsound was today at 23W 6D - They could just barely see her heart, but got what they needed, saw her Diaphragm but not her lips.
Okay, so when I met with my midwife she said that they wanted to see her lips. The way she was facing was not conducive to do that. I am assuming its to see if she has a cleft pallet or not. But I was planning on seeing if I could find anything on it on the net today. So when I called DH to tell him that his daughter was uncooperative, he was all pissed off. Why didn't I ask why we needed another one, what purpose will it serve. He said it's not like we will be doing anything anyway....While he has a valid point and I should have asked more questions, I really didn't care. I know (from what I have read) that Ultrasounds are safe for the little one, and that the more I can see her the better. As long as they are "needed" by the doc my insurance is going to cover it. I might call today and just check to make sure and if we don't have it covered then I will cancel it.
But I am sort of pissed off at DH this morning for not asking how she was looking, if she was moving a lot etc....he was more concerned about me not asking the question. It might be because we watched the Business of Being Born last night so he now thinks that my actions are not the same as my words, because I didn't ask a question. I trust my midwife and with that trust I don't feel like for something like this I need to ask...
Thanks for listening.
