Hi Moms, yesterday I had my USG and radiologist said she was not able to see the stomach bubble... So my doubt here is does it appears so early at 11 weeks??

Answer from Sonali Shivlani
When the baby swallows amniotic  fluid it shows up as a black dot on the sonogram and is known as the stomach bubble. It is expected to be prominent post week 14. It is best that you discuss this with your gynac and have a repeat scan after week 14. At this point it is not a cause for concern just something to check for in the next scan.
