Answer: hi dear! echogenic foci is nothing to worried about in the heart dear. its a normal variant and it does not mean that there is any abnormality in the heart . and these will appear in the mid pregnancy and wont go away before delivery but it will cause not trouble to the baby so you dont have to worry . just with the help of scans we should just see the status of it. the cause for this is unknown and this means that there is a bright spot seen in the left ventricle of the heart. so dont be bother about this dear. take care.
