It might just mean the baby wasn't in the right position to be able to measure it. That's the most common reason for a rescan. They took ages to get mine, I had to go for a walk for half an hour to get baby to move

It prob means they couldn't measure it. They have be in a good position and my bubba was being a pain in the butt. We had to shake him poke him walk around and have a coke before he was in the right position! They nearly had to rescan too so I expect it's that. Do you have a doc or mw you can call to ask to set your mind at rest?
