    Post femur length and downs

    I am high risk downs 1:30 and my baby has bilateral clubfoot. I have had 8 scans so far and up until the 7th scan everything appeared normal. Then on the 7th scan (28 wks) my dr was concerned that my babies femur length was falling a little behind. I was booked for another scan at 32 wks and my Dr said that his femur was approx 7mm behind and was about 5 wks behind the rest of his body growth. He did not say that femur length was a soft marker towards downs, but have read on the internet that there is a connection. Has anybody else experienced this.
