HI
ACCORDING TO YOUR LMP 14TH OCT,NOW YOUR GESTATIONAL AGE SHOULD BE AROUND 29WEEKS. YOUR ULTRASOUND GESTATIONAL AGE IS 22 WEEKS.ALL THE FETAL PARAMETERS ARE CORRESPONDING TO EACH OTHER INDICATING A NORMAL FETUS. PROBABLY YOUR LMP IS NOT CORRECT.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE ECHO FOCUS IN LEFT VENTRICLE...
IF YOUR ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH YOUR DOCTOR'S WORDS, YOU CAN GO FOR A FETAL ECHO DONE AROUND 20 TO 24 WEEKS. FETAL ECHO IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE IN DETECTING CONGENITAL HEART DISEASES.
