That's good :-)

I'm 20 weeks pregnant as of today. My maternal serum screen gave me really low risk results, so I'm happy.

I got my anatomy scan results back. Baby has a bright spot in the heart, but I did a lot of research on this and babies of my ethnicity have a high rate of this. I read a lot of sources that said it shouldn't even be a marker for us, and the rate for us may even exceed the rate of it in babies with Down's. The spot may just be a variant of normal and causes no harm.

Even with the spot and new odds (calculated based on Caucasian odds I'm sure), I'm still well in the safe negative range for issues so I'm no worried.

However, my scan also showed that the placenta is too close to my cervix. The vast majority migrate to a safer location as the uterus grows, but if it doesn't it means I will need a C-section.

There is a chance of massive bleeding causing emergency C-section if the placenta is disturbed while close to the cervix. It's pretty scary and I'm just hoping that mine migrates.

On a positive note, I feel my baby move and it's the most amazing thing! She's quite active. I was pleasantly surprised to feel her move at 17.5 weeks. It's rare for first time mother's to feel movement before 20 weeks.
