Just had a private baby bond scan In Saturday Measured 11+1.However their is lots of fluid behind babies neck so they suggested I ring my midwif.She also said their is a chance it could be because of a big genetic abnormality, hole in the heart or downs etc.Really upset right now and scared I'll loose my baby.Also I had one cyst in right ovary at 9+6 now I have two cysts and what looks like a blocked tube. So now I'm worried I'll never have children.
Fluid measures 4.5mm
im so scared . Scared I'll miscarry, have to give birth stillborn. I'm only 21 with no family history of any issues so I just don't understand how this happened.

Do call your midwife; I don't know what area you are in, but here in Dorset we have combined testing for Downs etc.
The fluid is only one of the measurements which are then used in a calculation to work our your individual risk.
Please call your midwife, and try not to panic, they will have dealt with this before, and may be able to bring your 12wk scan forward to get your testing done.
Good luck x

when I had my 12 week scan for my DS the fluid measured 3.7 and along with the bloods they took I was given a 1:18 chance of the baby having Down's syndrome or another chromosome problem as well as potentially having heart problems.
I was offered CVS testing which would tell us whether he had any problems or not. All came back totally fine and no heart problems. He is now a happy and healthy 14 month old!
A high measurement doesn't mean very much, talk to your midwife, get bloods done and go from there xxx if you need to chat then im here
