My babys ultrasound

So on the 7th I had my anatomy scan. And they said because of babys position they could not get good pictures of her heart and brain. They also didn't get good measurements of the babys one leg and arm. Has anyone else had to go back and have their anatomy scan redone? Should I be worried about her? They said that she was growing properly and weighed about 10oz  guess im just concerned for her

I had to go back twice, first time he was moving too much for them to get measurements on his head along with a few other measurements, the next time I went he was more subdued lol and they were able to get what they needed.

I had to go back twice, couldnt see his face and heart the first time, the second time theybcould see his face but still didnt get a good shot of the heart, they also realised they hadnt checked his kidneys, even though my partner had only 1, and they couldnt see thesee so had to go back 3rd time, and spend hr jumping up and down to get baby to move his hands from infront of his tummy (: got there is in the end.. i was the oppersite of worried.. was actually gald they were taking it so seriously, and i got to see my baby twice more!

It must be the day lol. I had anatomy scan the same day as u did my baby was moving to much and then nor enough. They had me rolling but she wasn't having it. The doc n tech said from what they could see she looked good. But they got to have those pics it's a must have. I wouldn't worry baby is fine.

I had to go back because my son kept hiding his face and they had to physically see it to make sure everything was okay

During my last pregnancy I had to go back 2 or 3 times. She kept hiding her head by tucking it close to my pelvis. She was very shy

I had my gender scan on the 9th and she was doing a handstand and moving like crazy but was positioned so low into my pelvis they couldn't get her face. I know it's not the same as measurements but we were hoping on 3D pics of the face since that's what we paid for but hopefully at our 20 week anatomy scan they'll get a shot or two. She just so darn stubborn like her mom lol

My anatomy scan was perfectly fine the first time but later on during my pregnancy I had to get another ultrasound n they said they couldn't see her heart good or her right hand n she was measuring way behind but it was bc how she was positioned and she was born perfectly fine
