Im a first time mommy to be, im 21 weeks and 2 days pregnant. Up until last ultrasound everything had been going great. I mean pregnancy has been wonderful but today my doctor called me..she told me they werent able to locate SOME of his left fingers that she wants to send me to a high risk doctor to have another ultrasound done. Of course i was just kind of numb and just told her that was fine..i guess what my question is..Has this happened to anyone? Where they say they cant locate some fingers on a specific hand. Im so nervous & well they havent called me to schedule an appt you would think after telling someone something like this they would call right away..

I've had a few scares like that. It is usually nothing to worry about. Once, the one and only time my husband went with me to an appointment, the lady insisted there ws no fetal heartbeat and excused her self for a good long while. Turns out she was just doing a poor job, and my son is a happy and healthy child now. I could have died on the table, hearing it though. Ultrasounds can be tricky, and even experienced technicians can have trouble finding parts or reading the image. Keep your hopes up :)
