I had my 21 week scan yesterday with the Maternal Fetal Medical team at a specialized hospital for women several hours away from our house.

Triona Congrats on your healthy LO and great U/S. I have no experance with the notching but looked it up and it seem usually fixes itself. I will pray that is the case for you too. I will keep you and your LO in my prayers all the same. KUP

That's great there were no soft markers for down's! I don't know about notching either, but I hope it resolves itself. I'm so glad you had such a sweet u/s.

Glad everything looked good & the u/s lowered your risk.
I have no clue about notching, Ive never heard of it. Did they say anything about potential bedrest to help?
Hopefully it clears up.

MIndy,

Apparently bed rest wouldn't make too much of a difference at this point, but I will re-ask the question at my 24 week mfm appointment.

Triona,

So glad to hear the Dr lowered the chances of DS. As for the notching, I also had it at my 18 week U/S. Like you, I was already taking baby asprin (and lovenox) so there really wasn't anything more for me to do. Of course, I stressed myself out about it and read everything online - big mistake. 6 weeks later at my 24 week U/S it was gone. My SIL also had it early on in her pg and it resolved itself as well. Hope you get the same good news at your 24 week appt :)
