Echogenic Intracardiac Focus - anyone dealt with this?

Posted by   + Show Post
I am brand new to CafeMom as well as the group...my name is Bethany, I have a 19 month old daughter named Charlotte, and I own my own Work at Home Business that enables me to stay home with my kids!
My husband and Iwere told on Friday at our 20 weeks sonogram that our baby has two Echogenic Intracardia Foci.  Has anyone had any experiences with this?  Should I be as worried as I am, or not?
Thanks for any help you can give.

We were told our baby has an echogenic focus on the heart but that we have no other DS markers and not to worry.  I am still worried just because of my maternal age of 37.  We opted against an invasive amnio and are just hoping for the best.  I have talked to Moms on other websites that got this diagnosis during ultrasound for each of their kids and they did not end up having DS or any abnormalities.  I am due in less than 4 weeks, so I'll have my own answer for you then if you want to follow up.
