Im, shall we say..generously proportioned and they said they couldn't see certain parts of dd2 due to her position. My cushioning wasn't actually mentioned although I was expecting it to be.

Maybe it was just position of baby? If you're in the desirable range then I dont see why it should ve true mh.

I am more than a few pounds over any flaming guideline, dont worry about guidelines anyway, just keep eating healthily as you are x

My midwife noticed that in the sonographers notes they had recorded that they couldnt see everyhting due to MH, the baby was very active duringthe scan (and since!) and i think this was why, but its recorded as that. when I looked online m h seemed to be linked to being overweightm and bmi, I have always been "desirable" in the bmi range, and had never been overweight, and am really upset that this might be the case, I am 26 weeks pregnant and according to the preganancy weight calculator I am a couple of pounds overweight, my legs are getting stiff too, I dont feel i am eating unealthily, but do have a very large bump out front. feel really sad about this, anyone else had this recorded?
