White Spots On Baby S Heart

Kathy - December 16

I just had an ultrasound on my baby's heart today bc on the initial ultrasound the doc couldnt see part of the baby's heart now they tell me there are white spots on his heart and that they are in about 5-10% of all normal pregnancies but in women 35+ they can mean that there are chromosomal disorders(down syndrome etc) im 22yrs old 23 weeks pregnant....i just want to know if anyone else out there has had this happen to them if so give me some feedback please before i go nuts!

Kathy I had the same thing happen to me, they did a second ultrasound and said it was a soft marker for down syndrome and it took 3 markers to really be concerned. I could have done amnio however I decided against it

hi cathy im only 22 and due on 26th feb but on my 20 week scan they found a white spot on the heart and a cyst in the brain i refused further testing as the risks with it were higher than the chances of the baby having abnormalities

Hi, I have a question - Lori you mentioned something about markers? I just had my 12 week scan and the neural translucency came in at 2.1 mm is that a cause for concern? Do you have any idea? The tech was taking a long time but in the end she called my husband and when he asked she said the baby looks healthy. am i just paranoid??
