The doctor found fluid around my babies lungs: Has this happened to anyone else?

Hi! Could you please make an anonymous post for me? I had my first ultrasound yesterday at 8+5, and they found fluid around the baby’s lungs. They had me come in for another ultrasound today to show me what they were talking about. The Dr said the fluid could disappear on its own by 12 weeks or that it could be something more serious than has caused it, like chromosomal abnormalities. We go in at 12 weeks for another ultrasound, and we will be doing genetic testing then too. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what ended up happening. Thank you.

This ladys has obviously been told by her dr do obviously u can see.
From 8weeks the lung buds start to branch so its visible. And a specialised dr will be able to tell

You can’t see anything that early but a dot with a heart beat

Can they even see the lungs at 8 weeks?
