Just copying and pasting my post from J'16 to see if any one can help out here...A few weeks back I posted about my marginal placenta previa and polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid). Today I went for a follow up ultrasound at 24 weeks to check the fluid level and see if my placenta has moved. Fluid is the same, still high, and the placenta has barely moved up half a centimeter. On top of those worries that have consumed my mind for the past several weeks, I was also told the baby has an echogenic bowel, which means part of his intestines appear white like bone, which they shouldn't. There are a number of things that can cause this... Cystic fibrosis, Down's syndrome, trisomy 18/21 (doing more tests on those, but initially was very low risk and no other markers have been found), an infection like toxoplasmosis, or an intestinal blockage. Some of the time it's nothing and clears up on its own. Of course I started crying uncontrollably when the doctor told me this today. I just can't take any more worrying and I know it's not good for the baby. With my first pregnancy 2 years ago I had no issues whatsoever. I like to be fully I formed so of course I looked up more info on this when I got home-- some was reassuring and some was definitely not (fetal death in severe cases). With my placenta and fluid issues I'm already at risk for preterm labor, placental abruption, cord prolapse, plus other things, and now this.... The good news is that my baby appears to have a grade one diagnosis, which is "very mild," as the doctor put it. Has anyone else gone through this before? What was the outcome?
