Copied from my Catholic Parenting Post:

The baby had a bright spot on the heart today. That means a possibility of downs syndrome or a heart defect. They only really mentioned the downs, but said there were other things. We're going to relook at 30 weeks since I was more worried about a heart defect (which I know could go along with downs), but I just want to know if baby needs surgery or something if they can tell. Everything else looked good, and dh looked up the condition and said he found stuff that says in 99% of cases baby will be totally normal and not have abnormalities from what was seen, so hopefully all is well.

KUP... I'm sure it will be fine. Does the one percent include small holes in the heart that close up on their own? Because then the chance of big complications would be even lower, right?

It is unlikely it is a big complication in my opinion because they did see the heart appeared to be working correctly, just had a bright spot.

We did find that information out. If you (any of you) would like to know you may PM me with a promise you can keep from saying he/she to avoid my MIL who is JM stalking me finding out. If she can't be part of our lives, then she doesn't get to know.

Good luck at your apt. I hope everything turns out fine. My friend just lost her baby to heart and lung problems and it's been very heavy on my mind recently (I'm not trying to say that to scare you, her LO had many problems and much bigger then just a small spot/blur). I'm saying it as anyone that has even a small possibility of something means so much more to me right now! I'd be a huge ball of nerves for the next 9 weeks - thinking of you!

The tech said everything she could see on the heart was working as she thought it was supposed to, so hopefully it is nothing. But I've said repeatedly it is the idea of something wrong with her heart that scares me far worse than downs syndrome (which I know often comes with a heart defect...)

I hate hearing something could be wrong, but I also think more often than not, it's really nothing to worry about. I hope everything is well at your next appt. You and baby are in my thoughts.
