Does that look like spina bifida?

I tested positive on a triple screen test, so I couldn't wait to see a specialist so I went and had a ultra sound done. The tech said SB would be very noticeable if it was there and I don't see it? Do you?

    I really don't even know what it would look like on an ultrasound. Here is a bump for you.

    Look up spina bifida ultrasounds. It looks like it to me. I'm sorry :(.

    My niece has spina bifida. Doesn't affect her at all, other than she has a crooked buttcrack and a dimple. I think my brother called it "asymptomatic SB" maybe that's how your baby will be?

     They didn't think my kid had it from an ultrasound, but rather an indent at the top of the butt crack he had when he was born. Supposedly that is a sign. They wanted to do an ultrasound of his spine and find out that way. I said no because I knew there was nothing wrong with him. So look at the top of the babys butt crack when he/she is born. It looks like a hole of some sort.
