Depends: On the amount of fluid. In general if we see fluid around the heard (pericardial effusion) that goes away when the heart relaxes (diastole) then it is basically of no consequence. Having said that, 9 weeks is a little early to see that and she needs close followup. If it is an abnormal amount, there are many causes, most of which are not good have. Let's hope it's just a tiny amount!
