  • I went through this with my 2nc child who is currently 9 months. When I had my 1st sonogram they told me there was a black spot on the heart. I of course freaked and like you googled it to find out that there was a possible DS link. When I went back again for my next sonogram they told me he was looking good and didn't even mention the black spot! So I said something to the tech (this was at the hospital not an office) and she told me that once it is there they never go back and look for it again.

    I was completely stressed over it. I had sonograms throughout my pregnancy as they told me he wasn't growing on schedule. They never again brought up the black spot. I opted out of the blood work (can't think of the name) that allows you to see if there is DS or anything else wrong with the baby. My son was born 3 weeks early last March but is completely HEALTHY!!!! So relax..I am sure everything will be ok!
