Symptoms as in a lot of flatulence and burping ?
There is definitely nothing to worry about the echogenic sonography as this will not affect the pregnancy in any manner for sure.
The fact that you don't have any symptoms shows that the volume of gas is very less.
Do not worry.
It doesn't mean anything or is not related to the history of three healthy children
Do you Agree with what I have mentioned ?
Echogenic bowel is a sign of trisomy 21.
However , you can sometimes get false positives with the gas in the bowels that make the shadows appear brighter.
The fact that you have healthy children , it is not that important to consider.
Do you have history of genetic issues in the family ?
What is your age ?
I would not worry about this .
There is Blood test called NON INVASIVE PRENATAL TEST .
This is done betweem 10 to 22 weeks.
You can get this for any chromosomal issues suspected.
