Ladies please help!


I went for my anatomy scan yesterday & I'm really paranoid I can't see the baby nose or nose bone, the tech can't tell me anything until the doctor sees them can you guys see it?

I can't see it from this picture, however, the face isn't that clear so the likelihood is everything is fine and you just can't see it.

Did the sonographer say that he thought there was a problem, or did you ask about the nose? Chances are everything will be fine, and you just can't see it.

I don't think I can actually make out a nose on my 20 week scan picture either, however, all was well at the scan, and there was absolutely no cause for worry, so hopefully it's the same for you xxx

A baby's nose is cartilage until he is 2 years old. You won't be able to see a nose on a traditional sono. You should be able to see the nasal cavities ( but not from this angle). A 3d Sono will show it though- is that an option for you?

Don't stress.

It looks like baby's head is turned to me. You can't clearly see a nose on all of my pictures from scan but on some you can. Try not to worry although I know that's easy to say. Did the sono not say anything? x

It's normally just an angle/position thing. Did they reschedule you for a follow up? With my first son, it took THREE scans at 20,22,and24 for them to finally get a picture of the nose. This one they couldn't get several pics they needed, so I have to go back next week.

I agree that it just looks like the head is turned. Just my opinion. I'm sure it's fine!

It just looks like a bad angle/pic to me. You could see the nose in my regular scans with both my boys, and with this one, but not great. The 3D/4D scans are where you can really see it. I'm assuming they'll just have you come back for another scan. Babies don't always cooperate! The skill level of the u/s tech also makes quite a bit of a difference.
