We are very sorry to hear that you've been given this result during your baby's ultrasound.  We hope your doctor is answering all of your questions. Any unusual finding on an ultrasound is scary for new parents to be.  Generally, this can be an early marker for birth defects that would include either chromosomal issues or heart defect.  Extra fluid can go down and they'll want to monitor the situation with your baby.  Please let us know what your doctor says and know our thoughts are with you.

Hi, I'm reading this and wondering if you ever met with your doctor for information?  I hope everything is alright.
