Why would my doctor order an abdominal ultrasound instead of pelvic one if 36 weeks pregnant?

In brief: Better visualization

At 36 weeks pregnant, it is very difficult to see any of the anatomy of the baby or of your uterus through a pelvic ultrasound.
The baby and the uterus is predominantly in the abdominal area.
