thank you so much Jennifer. i am going to do all the tests on wed to check for any other diagnosis. your negative tests are encouraging me I hope i will have negative results too.

My son did not have this but I have heard of it. It is when the ventricles in the brain become dialated and there are some associations between this and certain illnesses/genetic diseases such as spina bifida, and Down's Syndrome. Here's some information that I found on Wikipedia hope it helps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ventriculom...



It must be a really worrying time for you, if you ever need to talk just message me - my son was found to have Echogenic Bowel at my 20 week scan which is associated with genetic diseases. I had an amniocentesis and the tests were all negative but it was such a stressful time for my husband and I.
