I am going to sound like a worry wart but I am just anxious.

Hi Kristi,

I don't think that would be something to worry about so early on. The eyes are still developing, and nowhere close to being what they will look like when he/she is born. If it makes you feel better, I have a child with Down Syndrome and his eyes barely slant, and especially didn't when he was first born. A better way to determine signs of DS would be the thickness of the neck, and I'm sure they would've told you about it. Best Wishes for a healthy baby, and try not to worry.

Facial pictures with US and especially so early are deceiving.

That's funny how sometimes we don't show any signs of pregnancy. Well you certainly showed them with a strong heartbeat etc! That is a very good sign. Your baby is way too small for any facial deformities to be detected yet. Try to relax, I'm sure your baby is fine and you have nothing to be anxious about. Merry Christmas!
