Twin dating ultrasound
The specialist who I was booked to see was away at the time so my appointment was in 2 weeks. Two weeks later much to the astonishment of the specialist the next scan showed the fluid gone but the baby had swelling of the liver suggesting their had been an infection. I refused any more scans and went on to fullterm delivering a healthy, small (51b 80z) baby.
She has been well other than in her teenage years she had some bouts of nephrotic syndrome (her kidney leaked protien causing swelling), I don't know if this was related or not.
Fear alone can cause health problems and I didn't want to see my baby in fear for my entertainment.
I am now wondering if I should be concerned about the routine use of dopplers?
But I want to share my personal experience which is an exception (perhaps rare).I know the chances are pretty low..for us, it was my boys' lives.... I do agree that there may be exceptions if you are high risk, like if you are having twins or multiples, but if you are having a relatively normal pregnancy, I don't think it's necessary to have so many ultrasounds.Thank you so much for standing for unpopular views, Dr. I hope I don't sound like I'm opposing you... I do think it disturbs what is happening there organically, and there haven't been enough tests/studies done to prove that sound waves are indeed not harmful on babies.One boy was getting to much blood and could have gone into heart failure, and the other one was literally "shrink-wrapped" in his sack.His bladder was also not visible (from lack of nutrition/fluid).

There have even been some studies showing that more ultrasounds caused male babies to be born left-handed as opposed to right-handed.
