BUT she didn't check: hands, feet, face, bowels, or blood flow to any organs. It seemed like she only cared about the size of the baby and nothing else. My baby could have a cleft palate and we wouldn't even know!!

I just felt very dissatisfied with the scan and I don't know what to do about it.
Yes, definitely bring this up at your next appointment. Did you say anything at the time to the tech? Maybe the paperwork was wrong. Once when I went in for a US the paperwork said I had gestational diabetes. The tech asked a casual question about it and I was like- what??
