Because relative to your size and weight, the ultrasound is not that powerful. If the power of the ultrasound was proportionate to your body as it is a fetus and encompassed your entire body for several minutes, I would imagine you would feel pain. Pain reactions have been recorded in babies who have undergone ultrasound in utero.
