What is maternal habitus?


I've just been reading through my notes, and on the letter from my ultra sound confirming my pregnancy it says:

Ultrasound view:restricted by materal habitus

What does this mean?

I think it means something is blocking view.
Could be an organ, physique, etc..
That's what I get from google.
Don't quote me on that, but that seems to be the answer I'm getting.

Maternal habitus: from what I read on other pages it means the habitat that the mom is providing for the baby. Maybe the density of organs or different bone structure, where the baby is sitting, extra weight...
But don't take my word for it.... ask your doctor

From what I've googled, it's the sonographer way of saying the woman were a little overweight how rude in my opinion.

i think they have to write just to cover themselves, that way if they miss anything they can blame it on our size.

I have this on mine, im a big girl and the sonagrapher just said it was cos of my size, but she added any lady wiv a BMI over 35 more often than not have this written and not to take any notice as she got all the measurements she wanted to check.

HTH.
