O.K, I just had my 1st "real" ultrasound & the Dr. called me & told me she found some "common anomolies". She said she saw an epigenic(sp?) focus on the left ventricle in the heart-this could possibly mean my baby will have Downs Syndrome-& she found something with the kidneys. She also said that these go away in 90% of the cases they see them in, but, wow, it's so stressful & worrisome. I obviously need to go in for another more in-depth ultrasound & possibly have an amneo, but I was wondering if anyone else had this happen or has ha a similar situation and has any words of encouragement for me. I'm worried & scared & hafta wait about a week for my next ultrasound...any info or anything would be helpful. Thank youAnswer Question

On my 24 week u/s they tech started making hmm sounds. This was my 4th baby so I knew that was not ok. I asked her what was up and she gives me the Im not a Dr. speech. So like 20 minutes later the Dr. takes us ( my ex and I) into her office, also a first, and said they found honeycombing on my sons brain. This could lead to a condtionn that like downs bit instead of having an extra cromizone, he was short one. Also unlike downs the disease was and I quote "not compatible with life" She gave me papers on late term abotrtions and the option of continuing the pregnancy knowing he would die uopn birth. She wanted to do a repeat u/s in a week. Needles to say this doomed baby is 6 and the light of my life, Drs are trained to go from worst to best. i hope it all works out for you.
