Anatomy Ultrasound

I don't think I posted here but we're having a boy! We have a girl who will be 2.5 when baby boy comes.

Question: does anybody have articles or info about what all they look for in the anatomy scan? I opted to have it since I am having an out-of-hospital birth and wanted to check for things that might require immediate care.

Everything they saw looked totally normal but due to position they couldn't get lips or heart output so I have to choose if I want a follow up u/s. I really don't want another but I wanted to do some reading about what the heart output would tell us before making a final decision.

 Congrats on the boy!!  When I had my ultrasound they had a list of things they couldn't see, I know one of them was part of the heart.  I think that's pretty common that they can't see something but I don't have any info on the hearts output.  I just went for another ultrasound and then they saw what they wanted.  I'm sure your baby boy is healthy, congrats again!

It's funny because with my first the only thing we couldn't see was her sex. This little guy showed that to us proudly yet hid his lips from us. Haha.
