Hi everyone, at my 20 weeks scan, the doctors found an isolated echogenic focus in the left ventricle of the baby's heart which is a soft marker for Down Syndrome. My bloods and NT scan came back normal and my risk is 1:11000, and according to the doctors, its very common and when found alone it does not increase the risk by much.
I am 29 and quite healthy, have a healthy baby boy and no family history of Down Syndrome from both sides.
We are losing sleep over this and I am super worried that my daughter will have DS. No matter what we will love her the same but this not knowing is really stressful.
Just wondering if any of the mums out there have experienced this also and what was the outcome.
Your input is much appreciated
