Has anyone ever been told your child has excess fluid on the brain while pregnant?

I had my ultrasound at 15 weeks and my OB is sending me to a more advanced facility to do a better ultrasound to measure the amount. I'm really worried because I looked it up and it's a condition called Hydrocephalus. It can cause many problems mental and can even cause death. My son has not been diagnosed with it yet, however, I am still worried.

  • this typically means down syndrome... although ultrasound can be wrong, i would get a second opinion.
