We had our 20-week scan today. Everything was fine except femur length which was below the 3rd centile. We were sent up to the FMU and a midwife said we will need to go back for another scan with a consultant so baby can be measured again. They’ve also taken some bloods. She said it could all be fine, it could indicate an infection or it could indicate Down’s Syndrome. She said she thought the likelihood of Down’s was quite low given that my 12-week screening came back all low risk but there’s still a chance.
We will get a call tomorrow and should have the scan within 72 hours so will probably be Wednesday or Thursday which seems like forever away.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Midwife said to try not to worry as all could be ok, and the short femur is the only concern, but it came as such a shock. Baby was very active and sonographer was struggling to get some measurements but seemed sure she’d got an accurate measurement of the femur x
