Ultrasound, Down syndrome ?

I'm scared something is wrong with baby. I went to have my 19week ultra sound screening and the tech said babies heart muscles looked dense but told me not to worry. I have been refered to a perinatal clinic for another ultrasound...could this be linked to Down syndrome?

  • I'm not a doctor obviously but I doubt it... Kind of cruel they aren't telling you anything... Have you asked your doctor what that could indicate? Hope you can get some answers!!

  • I've never heard of that being linked to Down's. Your MFM will let you know exactly what is going on. Hang in there!

  • IDK, but I wanted to say FXFY that everything is okay.  The perinatologist can usually see in better detail with their machines.  Keep us posted.
