A friend of mine had her 20 week ultrasound. They said there is a spot on the heart and the nose was underdeveloped. the Dr. said that these are two markers for down syndrome. He told her that she didnt need to do an amnio right now, but could wait. They are going to do an ultrasound at each visit now and she can decide if she wants the amnio from there. My questions:
1. Isn't it "more risky" to do an amnio after a certain date?
2. Is the ultrasound really a good indicator or is my friend just panicky?
