Yes. Ultrasound scan is completely safe during pregnancy. Since the doctor has missed one or two things it is best to go for a repeat scan to clear all the doubts. There is no documented evidence of any harmful effects of ultrasound on the fetus.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
