    Have many people had to be rescanned after their 20/21 week scan?

    I have got to go back tomorrow and have another scan, very excited about seeing my baby again, but wondered how common this was

    have they said why?

    I had my 20 week scan and a second scan at 21 weeks as they couldn't do the bottom half of the baby at the 20 week scan due to it's position.

    They said that they couldn't see all 4 chambers of the heart properly. She said that it was nothing to worry about and that the heart was beating fine, but that they have to tick the box to say that they have seen it so to speak.

    Oh yeah I wouldn't worry, baby was probably in an awkward position and they have to check these things. Fret not

    Thanks for that. They have rebooked me for tomorrow - I can't wait to see the baby again. The baby was being naughty throughout the whole thing ha ha, it kicked the sonographers stick thing (not sure what it is called) and kept covering its face with its hands every time they tried to take a picture.
