Hi, I'm 19 weeks pregant ant 37 years old,last week I had an ultrasound that didn't go so well. The midwife told me that she couldn't see the spinal cord and nerves in the brain and suggested that i go have an aminocestis done for down syndrome, even it doesn't run in my or the farthers family. She said she didn't see any markers on the ultrasound to indicate down syndrome so should I be worried? or is it too soon to see these things. Other than that the baby heart is good,five fingers and toes also movement is good. but she said they were using a level 1 ultrasound machine so should I be worried?
