    Had my 20 week scan today and all seems well! :happydance:

    Still on team yellow...

    Left feeling very happy, till I showed my sister my notes...

    My ultrasound scan report said the view was 'restricted by adiposity' so I asked her what it meant as she's a nurse...

    It means FAT!!!

    So basically they couldn't see my baby properly cos of my big wobbly belly... :blush:

    Anyone else had this on their scan notes?

    As if!! I have my scan on friday and have been worrying about whether they will be able to say baby or not because i'm a heavier girl! We are going to be on team yellow so not worried about whether they can see the parts or not, just hope they can see everything else!
    Will they give you another scan further along??

    I had my scan yesterday and was looking at the notes and at the bottom noticed something along the lines of 'Scan difficult due to increased BMI' - basically my big fat belly got in the way! Oh well, never mind - all was healthy with LO so that's the main thing. I'm not going to get hung up on it - I know I've got a big belly and it was pretty obvious to the lady doing the scan too, no doubt!

    I haven't and I am HUGE!!! MUCH MUCH MUCH bigger than you guys. Bloody hell, although I'd have chuckled if she'd have put that. I just laugh it off now, what can I do about it atm after all.

    Sorry pinkmac I didn't mean to worry anyone, they got all the details they needed and didn't mention there was any problems during the scan. You'll be fine too I'm sure xxxx :hugs:

    Thanks Charlie, good to hear I'm not alone! It was my 'nursey' sister that told me it meant fat! You can always rely on your family for honesty! :rofl:
