23 wks pregnant.echogenic focus in fetal heart. Please help ?

I am 23 weeks pregnant. In my level 2 ultrasound the doctor observed one tiny echogenic focus in my fetal heart. All other things were fine. My marker’s test results were also normal. We had fetal echo afterwards the cardiologist told right now it is normal but we need to get the baby checked after the birth. Please help

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Echogenic focus in fetal heart is a soft marker for certain anomalies on ultrasound. But single marker test is less important if everything is normal in ultrasound,and if fetal echo is normal and dual or triple marker tests are also at low risk.Then, don't worry and concentrate on being healthy and stress free.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
