Shadow on the heart found in ultrasound?

Postby rolienolie » Tue May 08, 2012 3:33 pm

Doctor just called telling me the baby's heart had a "shadow" on it and that it could indicate down's. Now I have to go back for another ultrasound. Does anybody have any experience with this?

My 1st daughter had this and did end up with a defect but she had several other defects and was just a very sick baby over all that wasn;t growing well.

My son also had this but he had ZERO problems with his heart. My MFM dr told me out of 8 u/s in a day he sees this once and it's very common. He siad it more likely nothing than it is something.

Praying you get a great report at your u/s.

Did you have the early blood testing done?
