I recently has a detailed U/S and they found the right kidney of my son was larger (left 1.5 mm, right 4 mm) the doctor said this is a soft marker for Down Syndrome.
(bit of background), this is my second pregnancy, I am 38, was tested and came back positive as a grouping that could have the trisomy 13, for my first,my baby girl is perfect. I refused the blood test this time, as it only puts you in the positive or not catagory, and scared the bejesus outta me.
Though this time the u/s did show the kidney, and doc said that my age is also a factor. Though never came right out and said yes or no, left me hanging with the is he or isn't he effected.
Has anyone been through the same, or any advice?
Now, yet again I am scared of birth defect.
