    Default Mildly echogenic bowel - anyone else had this on 20wk morph scan?

    Hello everyone!

    I'm wondering if anyone else has had a mildly echogenic bowel on their 20 wk morph scan?. My NT scan was perfect with very low odds for down syndrome and trisomy. The rest of my 20wk morph was perfect, which has left me totally stumped. I had bloods taken today to rule out cystic fibrosis and a raft of other viruses/illnesses. The hardest part is waiting 2 weeks for the results to come back. I'm interested to hear if anyone else has experienced the same problem and what the outcome was.

    Cf was my first thought. Cf runs throughout my family.

    I hated the 2 week wait for our cf test results, I found keeping myself focused on other things was the only coping strategy that I had.

    Sorry I can't be any more help. Hugs and good luck for good results.

    Thanks for the reply preggasaurus. Thankfully CF doesnt run in either of our families, however i know it is possible to be a carrier of the gene. Bub would need both of us to carry the gene so i am hopeful its not CF. ive decided to think positive and what will be will be. All i know is i have a beautiful bub inside me and i am very very lucky.

    Yep I did with DD. They did all the tests, which came back negative, and another scan at 30 weeks which showed DD was a-ok. She was born at 41 weeks perfectly healthy and is turning 5 in less than two weeks

    All the best, fingers crossed everything is fine with your bub.

    Hi ladies,

    Just wanted to give you an update on my blood test results for CF, serious infections and genetic disorders. All my tests were perfectly normal so nothing to worry about. I get to have an additional scan at 32 weeks just to check the bubs size and the bowel to make sure it is no longer mildly echogenic. Dr thinks the equipment used at the 20 week scan was to blame for the mildly echogenic bowel diagnosis.

    Hi ladies, a quick update and again a thank you to all of you who left posts for me.

    I just had my 32 week scan today and everything is excellent. No sign of a mildly echogenic bowel from 20 week scan. Bub is right size and weight - in 60th percentile.

    Its such a huge relief - its been 13 weeks of worry since my 20 week scan. Even though all my blood tests came back fine I still had that niggling worry that something was wrong. Glad its over now.
