Thanks for the query.

Usually nothing will happen by moving in the sleep, avoid sleeping in prone position as per as possible.
While doing ultrasound some structures like placenta, umbilical cord etc can come in the way of the waves and because of that part of fetal body may not visible clearly in one view.
As the fetal heart rate is good and your doctor didn't mention any anomaly no need to worry.
Take care.
