In brief: Different things
Turner's syndrome is fairly common.
You may want to refer to the turner's syndrome society. However, girls born with turner's will need tests to check heart and kidneys. Because of trouble with lymph fluid circulation, some girls are born with wider necks, wide-spaced nipples, puffy hands/feet. Your ultrasound will provide details also. Please discuss with your doctor.

In brief: Turner's syndrome
Turner syndrome in girls caused by the absence of one set of genes from the short arm of one x chromosome (usually from the father's).
Common findings in the newborn include: swelling of the whole body or just the feet; loose folds of skin, particularly in the neck; dislocation of the hips; underdeveloped or hyperconvex nails; broad neck and chest; low or indistinct hairline and multiple moles.
