So I'm very, VERY close to having a baby. Due date is chrsitmas, but I'm hoping it will be a few days before so I can be home with my kiddos for christmas. Anywho, because the baby was "diagnosed" with Ds (blood tests and visable markers but we opted out of the amnio and are operating under the assumption that baby does have Ds) I was getting monthly u/s. I think I posted about how the specialist said that everything looked good, but in reviewing his files with my OB she stated that because there was a small spot on the heart shown in the u/s (not a visable defect, and didn't change in size) that they would want to do an echocardiogram. She said when would depend on the health of the baby.
What can I expect? It kinda caught me off gaurd because he kept saying everything looked good, so I didn't really do any research about the tests they may do.
