20 week ultrasound concerns

I just had my 20 week ultrasound and the doc said everything looked great.  He indicated he was a little concerned about an indentation in baby's spine, which he said could be artifact from the ultrasound, the baby's position or indeed an indentation in the vertebrae of my baby.  He did say that it was not spina befida, but I am a nervous wreck.  He wants to have another ultrasound next month to look at it again.  Anyone ever have this happen?  I am freaking out.

I know you must be so upset about all of this but your Dr is doing the right thing by doing another ultrasound. It very well be a shadow.
You might want to post your question in the pregnancy forum because they will be able to help you more. I hope you and your baby are just fine. Take care. Remar
