I think it’s just the position of the baby. I think your baby has a full head (if there was something concerning, I’m sure your doctor would have said something)

I’m not an expert but no I don’t think the baby’s head is cut off. Plus I think the office would have been able to tell that. I think it’s just based on movement. At my last ultrasound at 28 weeks there were moments when they moved the wand around and things “disappeared” I think that’s normal.

You probably just have a squirmy baby! And ultrasounds aren’t really a “picture” but rely on something like sonar (from my limited scientific understanding) so when a baby moves it can really affect the picture you see. Don’t panic, I am confident your doctor or tech would have said something if something was wrong.

@pittgirl4: if there was something wrong they would have told you. (especially something as obvious as baby missing half it’s head!) You have nothing to worry about.

I am a x-ray tech… not ultrasound… but I do work with ultrasound machines and have an understanding for it.  I can tell you 100% that is just the way the baby is positioned in your belly when they scanned you and took that picture!  Nothing to worry about!  Sometimes it helps to call your doctors office anyways just to give you def peace of mind, but there is nothing to be worried about!!  Beautiful baby pic!
