Question:Hi dear, now I'm in my 21st week pregnancy... During my anamoly scan, doctors have mentioned that IC lateral ventricle 11mm.... Is this normal, or baby have any issues... Pls make me clear... I'm very much worried about this...
Answer: hi dear! Cerebrospinal fluid is a clear, watery liquid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, and is also found throughout the ventricles (brain cavities and tunnels).Ventriculomegaly is when the fluid filled structures (lateral ventricles) in the brain are too large.your child has mildly enlarged brain ventricles or ventriculomegaly without other complications, the condition may resolve on its own. so dont worry you will have to just keep a track on it. otherwise no problem . take care dear!
Question:In level II scan, lateral ventricle is 9mm. I m in 25th weeks pragnancy. Doctor advise to take one more scan within one month. Please suggest
Answer: Hello dear. Please note that 9 mm is on the high side of what's normal, 10 mm being the largest of what can be normal. It's always a good thing to monitor the measurements, but at this point I would say you have nothing to worry about. Do as your doctor says and be positive everything will be fine. Hope it helps.
Answer: Hello dear. You will be offered a growth and fetal wellbeing scan between 28 weeks and 32 weeks of pregnancy. This will show your doctor how your baby is growing. There is nothing to worry. Take care.
