    but i was wondering if i had a perfectly normal 16 week scan will my twenty week one be normal also.. if there was an issue such as spina bifida or down syndrome it would have showed up right? Sorry I am just so worried!! Thanks a bunch everyone!

    im not an expert honey. but i would assume somthing as big as spina bifida would have shown up at 16weeks.
    although iw ould think things would be clearer and more obvious in the 20 week scan. though there would prob be some issues, like maybe heart issues that couldnt be picked up until 20 weeks.
    although as i said im no expert and this is all jsut assumptions. however i hope it helps

    i really dont want to scare you but i went for a scan at 13 weeks and everything was fine but at 20 week scan baby showed indicators of downs.

    not sure about any other problems tho. the indicators they seen on my 20 weeks scan were in the heart and brain so maybe spina bifida wud show earlier as its the spine i think but im really not sure.

    just dont worry, it will all be fine :hugs:
