Hi everyone I am expecting my 2nd baby and had my 20 week scan today at 19+6 Due to BMI, anterior placenta and the fact that I'm not quite 20 weeks the sonographer couldn't get all her images/measurements so I have to go back in 2 weeks for a rescan. I'm fine with that as I had a similar issue with my son but she also said she needs to look again at the kidneys as both are showing signs of having fluid on them or renal pelvic dilation. This is down on my notes as a "marker" for Down syndrome. Well I have pretty much cried since I came home and am so upset. I've had a missed miscarriage and a ruptured ectopic and after the ectopic I said I was never going to get pregnant again as knowing my luck I'd get to the 20 Week scan and something would be wrong - now this happens. I know this can be pretty common and usually resolves itself so I guess I'm just looking for others experiences. The Down syndrome link is worrying me as I'm over 35 and in Northern Ireland we don't have any nt scans or testing to put my mind at rest. I'm actually quite annoyed at the scanner too, she said the dilation was mild at 6mm for one and 4mm for the other when the cut off it 7mm (tho I've read different figures online). Like why the heck did she even mention it if they're both below the cut off and she had to rescan anyway. I think sometimes my mum is right for all the benefits of modern medicine it also causes a whole load of stress.
