Okay well finally what I have been waiting for might be my worst nightmare.............. To make a long story short the doctors office just called with the results from the u/s on tues the 21st of jan. And she said they found something called echogenic bowel. Well to make a long story short. They said it is a possibility that the baby has type 4 downs. Or the baby just could have swallowed blood at the begining of my preg. Which this would be normal. The other stuff would be systic fibrosis (sp)? I wont know anything else about it until thur. When I go back to talk to the doc
