Have any of your lo's been diagnosed with (or suspected to have) a vsd (ventricular septal defect)? I had my anatomy scan this past week, and a follow up, where they think they have detected a VSD. The genetics department at Kaiser is now urging me to have an amniocentesis performed, as vsd can sometimes be linked to downs. However, both myself and the baby's father were born with this condition (it fixed itself without any problems), and our 1st trimester screening gave us a less than 1/100,000 chance of downs. I am very reluctant to expose my lo to the risks associated with amnio, but am unsure of what to do.
Have any of you been in this situation? If so, what did you do? any thought/advice are appreciated.
