Would you be concerned?

So each time I have had an u/s done my baby has had her arm over or by her face. The same arm. Would you be concerned that maybe her arm grew wrong or something? I had an u/s again last night and there she was again with her arm over face. Maybe I am over thinking this.

Babies seem to do that a lot... My nephew did that on his u/s, and my baby did it both ultrasounds. Even the baby on the prenoglogy siggy is doing it... I think they just like being curled up.

At my u/s the tech really had to wiggle my tummy to get the baby to move her arms, and she eventually put one down.

My baby wouldnt move his hand either.  But he did move it from his face to around his head.  I think if he can move from his face to over his head, he is ok.  I think a lot of babies are like this.

I will never forget--  my midwife (grrr!  lol!) told me that she felt something unusual on my baby's head.   (*I never had any ultrasounds, so I just had to trust her.)    She said it felt kinda big, on the side of the head.

My baby was born, fine & healthy, yayy.   But she'd always sleep with her hand near hear ear...  her habit.   I realized that was her "thing" before & after birth.


Hope your story is that simple, too.   ;-)

My little boy was in the wierdest positions at every ultrasound! He even had both of his legs over his head! It was insane, but completely normal!

Thats him with his legs over his head, I guess he wanted to make sure we new he was a boy! haha

And here he finally moved so we could see his face but he had his legs tuck under his chin and his arms wrapped around! It was so cute!

When we went for my son´s 3D/4D ultrasound he had both hands in front of his face.  He ALWAYS had both hands in front of his face!  My mom was with us and told him ¨if you move your hands grandma will buy you a truck¨ so he moved his hands and put both feet there instead.  Little monster!  And he was fine btw :)

dd did this too, during her ultrasounds! they said the girls do that, cuz they're practicing chatting on the phone(which she actually loves doing, lol) this one had its arms criss-crossed when the tech flipped over to 3d:

yes, you're over thinking mama!  Babies, much like any other human, have natural tendencies and positions they favor.  I'm positive that after this baby is born that they will often put their arm over their face like that when they sleep.  My niece has a similar tendency they observed with u/s too!
