I am 21 weeks pregnant and so far my pregnancy has been almost perfect. Perfect until my 20 week ultrasound detected missing middle bone on my baby's pinky, which is a soft marker for Down syndrome. Terrified I went ahead and did the amniocentesis test and the FISH results came back negative for Down syndrome, but I am still waiting for the final results. The baby's growth is normal and there are no other abnormalities that the tests have shown. The doctor says this is genetic but we can't find anyone in the family with this issue. I believe it's called clinodactyly. At this point since there are no other "abnormalities" I need to know if anyone else had this shown on their ultrasound results or had a baby who was born with clinodactyly? I am worried and don't know what to expect when the baby is born. Will he have difficulties with his hand?!
