    Hi everyone,
    haven't been on for a while as I was away and got back the day before. I had my scan yesterday but it's not good again..
    It shows that our baby's heart is not functioning normally, there's kind of a leakage in the right valve.
    Anyone ever had this experience, we were told that it might resolve by itself and another scan is booked for next week.
    There's a chance of 1 in 1226 that the baby might be Down's Syndrome.
    Please, if you ever had any experience like this please let us know. It is so so worrying, please?
    Many thanks

    Hi, sorry to hear that. My nice had a lot of trouble with her heart, not sure exactly what was wrong but it was very bad, my sil would have been advised to abort her, but she was too far gone when they found out. When she was born she had six operations and grafts with a slim chance of survival and was in hosp for a few months. She is now a happy and healthy 8 month old. Not sure if she had a leaky heart, but just wanted you to no that even the worst heart problems can sometimes be solved. Hope this gives you some hope xx

    Hi everyone,
    Am glad to let you all know that the Consultant said it's nothing to worry about and that because the heart is so small ot the moment, probably that's why and also I've met people with a leaky heart and this person now is 75yrs old both her valves has a leak.
    She said nowadays with all the equipment they have they will see every little thing but before they wouldn't even know.
    She just found out herself when she had an eye problem, went to the hospital and was told she had a heart attack and when did the ECG they found that she had 2 leaky valves which have been there for 75years.

    Life is so funny sometimes.. But thank you so much all of you for your kind support.
