    Default 31 week growth scan - nose/lips don't look right

    So I had my 2d growth scan last week. I have been looking forward to this as I normally get a good pic of the face. For my other 2 it was actually a good likeness to how the looked when they can out as well...

    Anyway I've had a little look and the nose/lips don't look quite right... They are huge and cover nearly the whole face... Do t get me wrong I will love her no matter how she looks however my husbands family has a couple of members with cleft palate so I'm just asking whether this might be a picture flaw or not?

    It does look a bit squashed so maybe she had her face pressed up against something?

    They told my sister my nephew would be born with a flat nose but it was perfect when he was born.

    Did the senographer make comment? Did you get the report? These pics look like there is an abnormality to me but I'm not a senographer, just my thoughts. I have 2 friends whose child had cleft palate, 1's father had it and the other cleft palate was in the family, it can be genetic. 1 in 3 babies have cleft palate if someone in the family have it.

    My son's nose looks like that in a scan, they're face is just all squished, I would try not to read into any of it.

    Default 31 week growth scan - nose/lips don't look right

    Also the sonographer told me that things like the nose always look bigger in the scan than they actually are.

    This is a 3D scan but his nose didn't look like that, wasn't that big or flat.

    I had the same at one of my scans. Was certain my dd would have a cleft lip. But she is perfect and I was told several times that ultrasound can distort images quite a lot depending on baby's position etc. I'm sure your baby will have the most kissable nose and lips you've ever seen

    I think that's distortion myself.
    I hope your report comes back perfect.
    I really wouldn't worry if it were me. Baby is in a bag of water and they are pushing sound waves at them. Hate to think what I would look like 😛
