I met with my doctor first thing Monday morning because I was so freaked out about my ultrasound last Friday. She reviewed the report and told me they also found an EIF, which wasn't mentioned to me at the U/S. I know EIFs are not tied to any problems in most cases, and that they show up in 5% of all ultrasounds. My doctor even said two of three of her daughters has EIFs.
We don't yet know the results of the second part of my genetic blood test, but she said the first part was well within the normal range, and of course my NT measurement was also low (nothing to worry about). Because of the two U/S findings, she did refer me to a genetic counselor. I have an appointment set for this Friday afternoon.
So my question: I asked the nurse who set up the appointment with me whether this would include a level 2 ultrasound. She said no, they wouldn't need to do that since I just had an ultrasound last Friday. I thought the point of the L2 U/S was to get a closer look at any abnormalities, regardless of how recent the last U/S was. Instead, she said we would meet with the genetic counselor about our risks, and do an amnio if we opt for that based on the consult.
Does this sound normal? I'm trying to decide if I should push for the U/S. The hopeful part of me, of course, is thinking the GC has already reviewed my file (which I know they did before scheduling the appointment, to determine what would be needed) and isn't concerned about the findings. The paranoid side is thinking it looks so bad that the GC doesn't see a point in doing another U/S.
