I recently had my 20 week ultrasound. The ultrasound tech informed the doctor the papillary muscle was more visible than normal. The doctor rescheduled an ultrasound for 3 weeks due to the baby's positioning they couldn't get a good overall view of the heart to make sure that there isn't any other issues. I am very worried. What does this mean?View Thread
How did everything turn out on this? Is your baby okay? I am 20 weeks and they did my routine ultrasound and they told me there was thickening of the papillary muscle. I am very worried about my little one and didn't see any of the experts reply to this but I saw it was 3 years ago. Thank You.View Thread
