Anatomy Scan

I had my anatomy scan yesterday.  It went fine but I have to go back in at 26 weeks because of my anterior placenta and the baby kept hiding behind it when she was trying to see his heart.  I guess not being able get a good ultra sound of the heart at 20 weeks is very common.  I'm kind of confused why this scan is so important though.  No other signs that something could be wrong.  It's not like anything can really be fixed in utero.  Lot's of women birth babe's without them.

Tired of going to the doctor/midwife for sure!  I asked if I could just skip 24 week appointment and come in at 26 after my ultra sound.  Luckily the midwife was happy with that.  Gave me the sugar drink to down while getting scanned and then I can get my blood drawn ASAP afterwards.  I wait longer in the waiting room than I'm even seen.  I'm happy no complications though.  That'd be a whole other level of stress.  I know the closer to birth the more I'll have to go to the midwife but jeeze! These will be a nice 6 weeks of no appointments!
