Hi mam,
I am of 8th month pregnant, just I went from hospital, they scanned me and they said with our scanning we are unable to see baby front part , only baby's back part is appearing so go for 4d scan.
So I am fully nervous that any risk is there for my child.. because earlier to this at 2nd month I went with abortion due to lack of growth of baby.. so my fear is whether it repeats again.

Lets see my today's reports

Thanks for your query.
Your ultrasound report is normal.
However,in 4 D scan, the complete anatomy of the fetus is visualized, and it is routinely advised at certain centres.
Please do not panic.
Go for the 4 D scan, and get back with reports.
Take care.
