Question: 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
CUA 34w2d+/- 1w 0d

Hello
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.
