Hello friends, I desperately need to hear from someone who has gone through something similar or knows someone who has. When I had gone for my 12week ultrasound, the doctor couldnt see the nasal bone and also noticed that the blood flow to the heart was not normal. Which put my baby at a higher risk for Down Syndrome. Doctor suggested us, we do Chorionic villus sampling (CVS). Which we did and the results came negative, and we were ofcourse very happy and stress free. I then went for an ultrasound at 16weeks. The doc checked the heart and it was all perfect this time however they still could see the nasal bone. I again had an ultrasounf yesterday, i am 20 weeks pregnant now. Yesterday the doc did a detailed check on the heart and it was perfect but there was still no nasal bone. They then did a detailed check of the baby's body and brain etc. Everything is growing perfect and seems good. But the absent nasal bone is worrying my doc. She now has suggested me to go for an Amniocentesis and its side effect can be a miscarriage But she also added that because all her body parts are growing perfectly and the CVS test has been done and it was negative, It might also be that my baby will have a small nose. Its just a facial feature and no abnormalities. Friends, I am so worried, has anyone gone through this. Does anyone have a normal baby born,, who didnt have a nasal bone in the ultasound. Does the nasal bone grow at later stages???? any kind of experience, news, suggestion,,, just ANYTHING will make me feel better. I live in the US and i have heard from my friends here that the doctors here do worry abt everything and give us stress. is it so???? even if it,, it doesnt make me any less stressed.
