First U S Tomorrow I Ve Went From Excited To Scared

I am getting my first ultrasound tomorrow. I am 20 weeks and I'm excited to find out the s_x of my baby...I've been excited up until now, but I'm getting nervous that they may find something wrong...I just feel like I've always had bad luck (already had 1 miscarriage), and although I've heard the heartbeat a bunch of times and it is normal, I was too nervous to take the AFP test, scared that they might find something wrong, so I refused it....I guess my question is, what do they look for at the 20 week ultrasound, and how common is it to find something wrong? I know I sound like a paranoid freak, but I'm just conserned.

I quite sure your little one is fine. Last week I had my 18.5 weeks ultrasound and they check the size of the baby, heartbeat, spine, organs, kidneys, etc. They just checked that everything was growing fine and the baby was healthy and normal, which it was. Good luck. All the best.
