Question about 3D ultrasounds...

I had an Ultrasound on friday. I was 23 weeks and 3 days. Well when the tech was done looking at his organs and stuff she showed him to us in 3D... She even printed us out a picture. Well in the picture his jaw is set back a lot. is that Normal for 23 weeks? is his jaw just not formed or is it something I should be worried about?

  • By 23 weeks they should be pretty much in proportion. Is it is jaw or his chin? It is possible to not have a chin, I dont know what its called but its a medical condition and is treatable with plastic surgery.

    But... it could have been just a crappy picture

  • I know if you have a 3d U/S done the pics can be really hard to get after 21 weeks. My friend's tech had to push hard to see babies eyes but the chin would disappear. If she didn't push hard she couldn't see the eyes at all. Ask the tech, but it's probably nothing to worry about.
