If your baby has spina bifida or cleft lip etc...does the ultrasound tech see these things?

Always, sometimes???

I have already had my 20 week ultrasound and they said my little girl looked great...but like all other mommies I worry.

I have been having scary dreams about those things...dont even wanna talk about them :(

  • Hey they would have noticed it. And its perfectly normal to have those dreams! I was told at 11 weeks that my baby could have downsyndrome.But, So far so good! I am 34 weeks pregnant. And if the unltrasound tech did notice anything they would have called your doctor at that moment and she would have had you come in. Don't worry girl! Your baby is fine. And there are some people who don't take any vitamines at all and their babies are just perfect! Good luck and congrats!

  • They would see it, but by law cannot tell you. It is up to your doctor to give you the results of the ultrasound.
