Better View Of Spine

FAS - July 6

My doc said that everything looked good on ultrasound but said we could have another one because they didn't get a good shot of the spine. It was optional, I guess since he asked me but I still worry a little. Is this normal?

I'd worry if it weren't optional, but it is so I'm sure everything's fine. Most likely the baby was positioned or too wiggly to get a good measurement. I'd jump at the chance for another ultrasound, especially since "everything looked good" - go for it!

In my 21 week scan they said they needed 3 views of the spine and they could only get one in the position the baby was in. I had to walk round for 20 minutes and go back in again and the baby had moved and we got the other 2 views. Everything was fine. It's probably just because your baby wasn't in the right position for viewing the spine. I wouldn't worry at all but I'd get the other scan done. It's a good opportunity to see your baby again.

I agree with the ladies. I'd go for another scan too just because I love seeing my baby. Doctors just like seeing as much of the baby as possible because they want to make sure all is ok. It's their job... and the spine is a biggie since it tells them a lot about how your baby is growing. Let us know how it goes.... though it's been 4 days since you've written this and you may already know.
