Re: Strange Face in Ultrasound? deformed?

Maybe the babies face was pushed up against your uterus, distorting the way it looked?

Re: Strange Face in Ultrasound? deformed?

I had a 3D u/s at 34wks and even though DS didn't look weird, there were some pics of his face all smooshed up. And one looked like he had Elvis Presley hair!! While the normal looking pics did look like him in general with chubby cheeks and the nose, he sure didn't have a bunch of black hair like it looked! LOL If you think about how smooshed they are in there you'd wonder why you want to even see them!! LOL I've seen some pretty alien looking 24wks 3D u/s pics.

Re: Strange Face in Ultrasound? deformed?

I could be wrong, but I don't think technicians are allowed to tell you anything because it's considered a "diganosis," and that's only something a Dr. can do. But if you're worried, call the doc for reassurance You don't need any worries; I'd call just to have peace of mind.

My dd's ultrasound looked hilarious. We called her "Skeletor" until she was born

It depends on if the person doing the US was a tech or a sonographer... Techs aren't allowed to say anything, but a sono can.

More than likely though, it's just a wonky picture. Could be the cord in front of the face too.

Re: Strange Face in Ultrasound? deformed?

So I have a happy update to report. Through the week I basically worked myself up into a frenzy around the possibility of a facial deformity. I called my doc, she got the u/s report without any indication of concern. Regardless, she called and spoke with the radiology doctor and sonographer and both of them reviewed the u/s photos and felt that facial deformities were adequately screened for and they were certain that there was no evidence of such. I guess the lesson I learned from this is that I should have asked about what I was seeing at the time rather than coming home and brewing. But Im glad I spoke more with my doctor who obviously worked to ensure I felt okay. She was even going to have me get another, more high def u/s, but at this point I feel reassured. Thank you all for your words of support.

Re: Strange Face in Ultrasound? deformed?

riley moved SO much, all his pics look so weird.. he looked like an alien, a ghost, and just overall weird. They said its because they move and they snap a picture, but dont get it very clear I thought he looked so creepy, so i sent the pics ot my friend who is an ultrasound tech, and she explained to me that he looked perfectly normal to her, its just how the pics turn out.
