Has anyone ever had 2-3 soft markers for Down's Syndrome and had the baby be healthy and fine? One soft marker was an Echogenic Cardiac Focus (just one), the other was the kidneys were slightly enlarged (one is 5.5mm and the other is 5.7mm). The doctor also mentioned the dilation of small bowel, but I don't believe that is really a soft marker of Down's Syndrome. He has referred us to a genetic counselor, and I will probably opt to have an amnio if recommended...but I'd like to hear some positive stories. I've been crying since we left our appointment yesterday and I'm just at a loss. We initially opted out of the 12 week blood test because our risk for any chromosomal or congenital defects was so low. We literally have no history of anything in our families except for one aunt with juvenile diabetes. DH and I are both 29 and healthy. My OB does not seem very concerned, but he says he's not an expert so he'd rather send us to one.
Just hoping to hear some positive outcomes, please.
