Re: a long and confusing one!!

Pregnancy sure can bring the panic out in us huh??

I don't think you should stress... have you had your AFP(triple screen)? was that your first ultrasound?

If there have been NO other indications that anything is wrong, and no one has SAID the words 'down syndrome' to you... then, just relax and enjoy your pregnancy!!

By the way...I don't know what the dot represented...but ALL fetus' have a hole in their heart, it's called a foramen ovale...that hole closes within the first 24 hours after birth,when the baby starts breathing air for the first time...so if that's what the blurb was on the US... that's completely normal for the healthiest of babies!
