Hi chinni,
Hope everything will be good and always think positive.
Stomach bubble means.. the baby will swallow some aminiotic fluid and that will be seen in the ultrasound as a small black bubble...if it is not seen that does not mean there is a problem.. as long as baby's kidneys and your fluid is correct...may be it is not in the position to get scanned.. so as the for facial bones..

What is your doctor or gynec say? Did she ordered for another ultra sound..If you are not happy with your ultrasound... check with your gynec and go for another ultra sound..
Dont get stressed.. with your doctors permission get an another ultrasound...

Hope everthing will be fine.. Be always positive...:)

Hi Laxmi,

Really thanks alot for your explanation and I would be greatfull to you if you can explain this more in detailed. I mean in layman language what could be the cause for this what (as long as baby's kidneys and your fluid is correct) and how can we avoid this. And secondly My Gynic suggested for one more Tiffa scan after 2 weeks. BY that time do i need to take any precautions or do i need to follow any specific things. Pls suggest me and advice me for my Healthy Baby.

Pls tell me whatare the questions i have ask my Gynic to know more about this clearly.

I am so greatfull to you .. Thank you somuch.

Hi chinni,
I also read from the internet and answered your questions..Not all the time baby will be in the correct position during ultrasound.. Sometimes. baby turns his face the other side or else his feet or hands not visible properly.. When the baby is sleeping.. its is very hard to get the ultrasound of hidden parts of the baby... Thats why they ask the mother to drink lot of water before ultrasound.. so go for 2nd ultra sound.. They will tell you everything what they are looking if anything is wrong. If not ask a lot of questions. You have the report right.. type the report about each organ and check in the google.. If you think you will wait until the gynec;s word. then relax and only think positive.. You cannot do anything or follow anything except the regular care for yourself and the baby. Check with the doctor is there any chance of downsyndrome or chormosomal abnormalities. They will ask for aminiocentisis to check whether the baby has any abnormalities during the scan in his spine/neck region.. So dont worry.. Dont think too much.. may be its just baby was not in the proper position to check during the previous scan.. Drink lot of water and positive thought during the next ultrasound... Everything will be good..:)

"as long as ..." means they will check the baby's kidneys for the its functioning.. the baby will swallow some of your amniotic fluid (the baby stomach bubble). IF your fluid is correct with the gestational age and also the kidneys of the baby are functioning properly, then there wont be any problem i guess. may be the baby was not in a good position during the ultrasound...
So dont worry...
