Fetal Echocardiogram


Hello all, 23 weeks here and been diagnosed with pregestational diabetes since 11 weeks. I’m not taking meds, just controlled with diet so far. Had a regular prenatal appt today and the baby’s heartbeat was upper 150s (having a girl). My dr is scheduling me for a fetal echocardiogram, she seemed pretty calm in telling me about scanning and looking for heart deformities. Is fetal echocardiograms standard routine or bc I’m considered high risk? Should I be worried? When I had my anatomy scan at 20 weeks, the doctor spent a lot of time looking at my baby’s heart chambers so I’m just a little thrown off why I’m having this done again. Upper 150s heartbeat didn’t seem so off to me, then again, I’m not a doctor 😅

Any thoughts or am I just worrying for nothing?

Thanks y’all
