Hi there...I was wondering if anyone has had a similar ultrasound finding during there pregnancy. I am currently 23 weeks and had my last ultrasound around 21 weeks. It was a normal routine ultrasound. The doctor said that they found an echogenic focus identified in the left ventricle of my babies heart. This was the only abnormal finding. She countinued to explain that this could mean that my baby has Down Syndrome. I just turned 30 years old and have a heathly 7 year old. There is no family history of any problems on either of my husbadns or my side of the family. She said that IF I had done the blood test earlier in the pregnancy, then they could have given me a better percentage of my baby having DS. Please..if anyone has experienced this please help!!! I'm going crazy not knowing what to expect after my baby is born. Thanks..:~)
