GREAT NEWS - CONGRATS!

I echo what Tulip says, make sure you enjoy the pregnancy now. I don't think the measurement would go up. In my experience when it was measured at 24 and 28 weeks they went down. And remember, they have found no other issues either so you are in the clear. I know it is difficult to feel really relieved sometimes because you gear yourself up for an issue but please make sure you relax now. I know how nervous it makes you and then it is hard to come down for that.

Take care all the best x

Well I am delighted to say that all looked "Normal" the ventricle measuring 8mm now so in the correct range. My placenta had also moved up (That was Anterior low a couple weeks ago)
The sonographer did say that these things tend to develop more further along?? Felt although she thought i was making it up (As the consiltant scanned me 2 weeks ago) I had to tell her about the high measurments! So she said all looking as it should be for now but thats not to say that it cant rise again... (right Mrs. Negative! eh)

So we were delighted!! We can deal with whatever happens in the future but so re-assuring to know that at present he is measuring as he should be! Pheeeew!

I can stop googling and imagining the worst!

Thank you again ladies for your support and stories. Its nice to know you arent alone in these things, whether it be for real or just a blip/scare.

xxxxx

That is absolutely wonderful news, I am so so so so pleased and relieved. I know how much upset and panic it causes. I don't think unless you have been through it that others really can know what it is like. You imagine the worst and the relief you feel is immmense. So pleased for you mare.

Yeah, the heart doppler scan thing is amazing. It's so reassuring when you see the heart functioning as it should.

Good luck for the scan in a couple of weeks - not that you need it. I suspect the measurement will be the same or even smaller.

Thanks for updating and enjoy your pregnancy now! Love to you and your little one x

Hi I just wanted to update with my story in case anybody googles VM.

My NT measurement was 2.5mm the sonographer told me that it was normal and I was sent away with my scan pics.
I had a call a couple of days later to say that combined with my blood my Downs risk was 1:115. I'm 28 yrs old.
I was referred to Kings College for a CVS, which all came back normal, and told me it was a boy.

I also had my 20 week scan at Kings, which was normal. Although they did tell me that my boy was measuring big, particularly his head but everything looked normal. They asked me to come back at 28 weeks for a re-scan on growth.

My 28 week scan was fine, he was measuring 3 weeks ahead in head and abdominal circ, on the 97th centile. His ventricle measured 8.6 which was fine.
Because of his growth they advised a growth scan at my local hospital at 32 weeks. I was discharged from Kings.

At my 33 week scan the sonographer said that the posterior ventricle measured 11.5mm. I wad referred to my consultant who measured it every 2 weeks, she got different measurements depending on the angle, she said it's very hard to measure late on in pregnancy.

She diagnosed Mild VM.
I had a normal CVS and TORCH was negative so she said it was isolated and mild. Again he was measuring big, all measurements over 95th centile.

I was induced at 39 weeks and he was born on Xmas day 9lb 8oz, HC was 37cm. He was scanned at 8 hours old and the VM remained.
They got an accurate measurement of 12.5mm it's unilateral. All other parts of the brain looked normal, no evidence of bleeding, no cysts, normal fluid flow.

My son is now 1 month old, he's doing great. He's very strong, putting on weight fine, very alert.

He is being rescanned in 2 weeks time.
Who knows what the future holds, when it comes to the brain you never know.
