It's their job to tell you if something is wrong/abnormal. That's what ultrasounds are there for...to make sure your baby is healty and developing properly. If they suspected anything, they would have told you.
Just be aware that even with an u/s, there CAN still be somethings that are detected, like down syndrome and such, but chances are, your little Beaner is healthy and perfect! Try not to get to worked up over it. I know it's hard, I had a hard time with this too. But honestly, it's just unecessary stress.
Hope this helps!
I can totally relate to how you're feeling. I did the triple screening tests (all came back the lowest possible percentile) and I still worry. My u/s showed that she was forming properly as well but I guess until she's here I'll still worry about those things too. I do agree with Brig though that it's best to try and not worry about them and just look forward to your healthy, happy baby being here!
I was a total nutcase during my pregnancy. I had the worst fears about something going wrong. Thank god he's fine but the anxiety was crippling!
Like Brig said chances are your baby is perfect. I will say this though. Always listen to your gut. There is a differance between common pregnancy fears and intuition. Trust your intuition no matter what anyone tells you. Im not trying to freak you out but I think you are your babys first and best doctor.
Towards the very end of my pregnancy I kept telling people something was going on. Something was wrong. No one listened. I was in and out of the hospital with doctors telling me I he was fine. Well he was fine but the last time I was there I begged for an ultra sound and the doctor said quote "Ill order one and then send you home" low and behold my amniotic fluid was so low they induced me on the spot. I was so angry because I had told them I felt leaking that they chalked up to being urine. If I hadnt of gotten the ultrasound any number of things could have happened. My OB's did apologize though I appriecte that.
See how I went on and on? I tend to do that. I would place bet my left hand that your baby will be fine! And Im left handed...
Enjoy the last of your pregnancy as much as you can! You will miss it!

my pregnancy was totally completely normal and healthy, the baby was completely healthy. I had all the screening done, tests required, and so forth - yet 1 month after her birth, it was discovered that she had a rare genetic disorder.
She is still a healthy, very pretty nearly 3 month old girl.......... We don't know what the future will hold for her but it doesn't matter because she is our little girl.....
