Has anyone had to go back for a second scan as baby kept moving too much making it impossible to get measurements?
The sonographer really wasn't very nice you could tell she was angry that the baby was moving, she was pressing really hard hurting my stomach. We were there almost an hour. She barely said a word to us.
Not the best experience but got to see my baby moving around :)

What an awful experience. I would be putting a complaint in. Sorry i have no advice but hope your next scan is a better experience x

Yes I did - but she was very nice and not at all angry. Not acceptable behaviour!!

My sis had 3 12 week scans cos the baby was in the wrong position. Then two 20 week ones for the same reason! All was fine although I think the consultant ended up having to do them just to be sure.
I'd complain about her attitude though!

In my experience scans do hurt, so while her attitude obviously isn't great, dont be thinking she was pressing extra hard to be mean or anything. It all looks so easy on TV, like they just glide the handset over but mine have all involved serious poking and prodding and me being shocked at how bloody sore they are!

I wouldn't be happy with an attitude like that but i did find scans, especially the 12 week one, very uncomfy as they have to press so hard.

It's a very special time and she should behave as such. No need to be rude or short with people. You need to mention this to the hospital as you wouldn;t want anyone else to go through the same thing. x

That doesnt sound like a nice experience! What a meanie!
I had mine this morning and the baby was dancing around all over the place and she said it was hard to get a good image and measurements but she was fine about it. was talking to the baby to coax it to stay still for a bit! She was putting more pressure on my tummy but the worst bit about that is that it really made me need to loo more!
i hope you get a different person for your next scan!!

Thank you! You've all put my mind at rest :) I thought something may be wrong that she wasn't telling me about. My midwife is ringing me this afternoon I think i'll mention it to her, it really wasn't nice lying there for an hour with barely a word being spoken.
Hopefully on Wednesday I get a different sonographer or even that one in a better mood, oh & hopefully baby will let the measurements be taken :) x
