Hello i am new to this board..My name is Laurie and I am 32 wife to luis.. I have 2 DD's Ava (4) Zoey(2).. I am pregnant with my third girl due in dec...I had 2 miscarriages one right before this one...The first one was early on. The second one i was 15 weeks and 5 days when i heard the baby's heartbeat..I went back one week later and the baby had passed..This pregnancy has been very scary for me..But thank God so far everthing is okay.. I had a U/S the other day and they said that my fluid was slightly low..( i know i don't drink enough water though) But they also found a left ventricular cardiac foci..Which the tech said is common that she sees several in a week..But it is somekind of marker for down syndrome and i have to go have a U?S at the hospital on Tuesday..My doctore told me that they are very common and most often are nothing but they have to check and of course i am a mess...Anyone here of this?? Sorry this was so long.
Well I am back and they said that my fluid looks great..They said that everything looks fine..With the foci there is still a very low like 1 out of 1000 something that the baby could have down syndrome..But he said i shouldn't worry cause everything looks good..The only way to tell for sure is amnio but i don't want that so i am just gonna have faith, that everything is ok..He said he sees them all the time and 99% of the baby turn out healthy..Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers..Your all great..Pics she was impossibe to get a good pic, she was in a ball almost the whole time..but we got a few.

I am sorry this pregnancy has been so stressful. I can relate to some degree. I have heard of this before but I don't know too much about it other than like you said it is fairly common and usually corrects itself. I hope that the next u/s will be able to put your mind at ease..well as much as it can.

Oh and about the low fluid. Drink plenty of water and try to stay in bed with your feet up as much as possible. And if your not a big water drinker, you can also try eating more fruit...it has water in it. Watermelon is a good source and low in calories too.

Sorry I couldn't help very much, but some of the girls on high risk might know more about it too so you might want to post there also. I hope you get some good answers.
