Anterior placenta and 4D scan

Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone else has had an issue getting a 4D scan because they have an anterior placenta? I'm 30 weeks and went for a scan today but couldn't see my baby's face at all because of my stupid anterior placenta envy the sonographer told me to walk around for 15 mins and have a cold drink but there was no change at all. They re-booked me in for Tuesday but got a feeling it won't be much different! Has anyone had a similar experience or managed to get a good shot of the face with an anterior? X

I have a an anterior placenta and my 4D scan went fine. It may just be that he was laid in a funny position.

Fingers crossed you manage to get some good piccys on Tuesday 😀

I had a private one at 26 weeks and the sonographer said that it's best to get one around then if you have an anterior placenta so I did manage to get clear pictures. I had another one at 37 weeks the day before i gave birth and got clear shots of her face although it was more difficult this time and she had her face buried into my placenta most of them time.

@Nat291 and @Boringnamechange1 thank you for your replies! ❤️ we managed to get one picture before he snuggled back into my placenta!
