Anyone's Baby Not in Right Position for NT Scan?

We went in for the NT scan today and try as they might, the tech and doctor couldn't get our LO to flip and get into the right position for measuring the neck. *Sigh* Everything else looked normal, but now I'll worry for 2 weeks while I wait to go back in for the second appointment.

Did anyone else go through this?

    This did not happen to me but I remember the u/s tech telling us at the one prior to NT and right before she did the NT that this does happen.  She said if that is the case they would just bring me back in the next day or so.  Since she mentioned it twice I am assuming it is a pretty common thing to have happen. You just have a stubborn baby! Smile

  • We had a similar problem, only they couldn't see the nasal bone. They said it wasn't a big deal and not worry about it. Our baby is extra stubborn because we are now on attempt #3 for the anatomy scan.

  • Actually yes. LOL, I just had my NT scan today as well and the same exact thing happened. Baby was on it's side and facing away from us. Couldn't see the neck fold or the nasal bone. Oh well, DH and I only opted for this test to have an u/s in the beginning of our 2nd tri. We aren't too concerned and the u/s tech did tell us there was a 50/50 chance that it wouldn't work.
