  1. Hello and I understand your anxiety.From the points shared by you it seems that your baby seems to be having mild/borderline ventriculomegaly.Many fetuses with mild ventriculomegaly have a normal outcome but few may have congenital anomalies.The prognosis will depend on the cause and associated anomalies.I suggest you not to worry and have patience.Wait for 4 weeks and get the scan repeated.Keep me posted on the scan results. Wish you best luck!Good day!
