I had an appt yesterday and they went over the results of the big anatomy sonogram I had 4 weeks prior. Everything looked good except one thing. He had an extra flap of tissue in his heart! However, there are NO other precursors for Down's Syndrome so most likely it will go away. I have to go back in 2 weeks (6 weeks from when they discovered it) to get another sono to see if it's still there. If it is, they will check again just before I'm due and if it's still there then, we will just notify the pediatrician so the pediatrician can keep an eye on it and make sure it won't become a heart murmur. So thoughts and prayers that the extra flap goes AWAY...please .
Everything was really good. I didn't have a babysitter for DD who is 3 and she was soo well behaved the whole time! HB was 161 and yes, he's a boy so there goes that old wives tale.
By the way, the name is Echogenic Intracardiac Focus.
Ok, now for the belly pic (hopefully this works)!!!

Just for comparison...since I'm in the same shirt and have my hair done the same way (EEK)...here is my belly shot when I was 41 weeks with DD2
I hope the flap goes away too, but at least you get to see your LO again! And yay for DD being good at the appt. It's always nice when the younger ones are well behaved!
And BTW you look great!

Totally cute bump!
Hope that extra flap goes away all on its own and there is no need to worry.

What a cute belly!
Fingers crossed the flap is gone when you go back.
