Abnormal 9 week Ultrasound

Jane Foley's picture


Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
We just had our first ultrasound yesterday after hearing our baby's heartbeat earlier in the week. The ultrasound tech noticed what she called a rather large "fluid pocket" near the lower spine (see the attached picture). Neither the doctor nor her had ever seen anything like it, but they told us not to worry (that these sometimes come and go spontaneously) and to come back in two weeks.
