    20 weeks pregnant - hairball found (baby stomach) in ultrasound
    An_267588 posted:

    I had an ultra sound recently and have been asked to come in again only 2 weeks later. They think they might have found a hair ball in the baby's stomach.

    Is this something that is common or has this happened to you or anyone you know? Do you know if this will harm he baby and will they be able to get rid of it ok?

    First pregnancy scare and am starting to really worry now. I just want to make sure that my baby will be ok .

    Thank you in advance for your help.
