On the switch/not switch thing. MOST of the time if the image is transverse (Either Transvaginal or Transabdominal) Right=Left Left=Right. HOWEVER, it is always a good idea to ask your sonographer "Is this transverse?" "Is the left of the image the right of my body?" Because they can switch the image any which way they want to with just a button push, and you would be none the wiser. But esp in early dating scans, they have no reason to switch, really.

The theory that Transabdominal is true left/right and transabdominal is "mirror" is one of those internet falsities floating around.
Ok I think that helped me out because one of my images must be transverse right or both images wouldn't show the baby in the same direction?

I need to have you over for tea or something and pick your brain lol. It's fun to guess though (only four more days for me!! Eeee!)
