so my midwife called me today and told me she wants me to have a level 2 ultrasound because the first one there was a shadow around the babys heart and she said not to worry it's probably nothing but they just want to make sure... and of course im worried... does anyone know if it is a problem what it could be... she didn't seem to want to tell me.... and i just wanted to add that it wasnt a spot she said a shadow on one of the valves so i dont think its the same as the calcium deposit which is what i was thinking at first

I'm not sure what it could be, but I would relax first off. I know that's not easy at all. But you will go crazy if you start googling things. Level II ultrasounds are really thorough and your dr will spend a lot of time with you going over the results of it. It may end up being nothing at all.[/b]

thanks I feel a little better... i know i shouldnt worry even my dr said not to but they always say that lol

Hi. I had to have a level II (several actually) U/S with my DD. I was sent for the exact reason your being sent now. They saw a "shadowy" spot on the ventrical. They did the u/s and told me that she had bicuspid aortic valve disorder. She did not need any interventions or extra help when she was born. We started seeing an expert after she was a couple weeks old, and kept a close watch on it. This year the condition self corrected and now she doesn't even need surgery! So keep your hopes up, it maybe nothing, it maybe something small. Even if it were an extreme case of BCAVD they can treat it with valve replacement. Try not to worry (I know its hard!!) You will be in my thoughts.
What do you mean it's a boy? This is a joke right? Christopher London is coming!!!!!!
