Why do these ultrasounds look so different

Two separate moms but both at 10 weeks. Why does the uterus for each mom look so different???

Re: Why do these ultrasounds look so different

My guess is different angle and different quality of machines?

I wonder if the right was vaginal. The left was only on the tummy. But honestly the machine on the right 'should' be better...

Re: Why do these ultrasounds look so different

I was thinking the one on the left is transvaginal and the one on the right looked to be abdominal. I've had a lot of u/s because of having 3 sets of twins. (lost one of the this set.) They both look normal to me. The empty space you see toward the top right of the u/s on the left is her bladder. She needed to use the bathroom.

Has she had babies before?

Your uterus is slightly larger and your bladder is full (you can see your bladder because it was on your stomach). Hers is higher up because it was TV.

The more babies you have the more relaxed your uterus is. So it may have a little do to with that if you are more parous than her. Also women come in all shapes and sizes.

Re: Why do these ultrasounds look so different

I always look at the shape of the uterus in ultrasounds (I don't know why) but I've seen many different shapes. (but thats all I got, no guesses on why.)

After I posted, I was thinking I might have been wrong about which was trans and which was abdominal because of the full bladder. For an abdominal u/s, you need a full bladder. For a transvaginal, they have you empty first. I bet hers is transvaginal since we can't see her full bladder.

Most of my early ones have been transvaginal, but I've had a few early abdominal also, especially with this pregnancy.

My uterus is retroverted so you can't even see a pregnancy abdominally til probably 12 weeks. I had one at 10 and the tech asked if I was sure I was pregnant How awesome your sis is preggers with you!
