    Default needing ultrasound to evaluate cardiac outflow tracts of baby...anyone had this done?

    Hi there, i have to redo an ultrasound this week ( i will be 21 weeks). It is to 'evaluate cardiac outflow tracts' of the baby that they could not see at my 18 weeks ultrasound. did anyone ever have this done? i am just curious what your experiences/outcomes were. please be honest i am ok. if you had to have this redone and the repeat ultrasound showed just fine, or if there was some sort of anomaly detected, please let me know thanks.

    We had this with baby number 3. Kinda freaked me out but then I went back at 27 weeks and all looked good. She is now almost 9 months with no issues. I hope you get them same outcome.

    I am having a fetal echo with this baby next week due to my hear condition, with that being said, when I had my anatomy scan, he wasn't facing the right way and they weren't able to get good pictures. It's normal to not get all pictures during the first u/s. I also have to have another u/s due to baby not showing his face.

    My sister had to have a 2nd u/s because they couldn't see everything. I don't remember what they couldn't see, but she was asleep the whole time and didn't move, so they couldn't get different angles. Everything was fine, they just had to see.
