About Me: Female, Australia, member since Aug 2010
I am 37yrs with two brilliant young boys 10 and 7, both born to my previous partner of 11yrs. I am now pregnant (unplanned) and due end Jan 2011 to my partner of 18 months who has unfortunately decided he does not support the pregnancy and now I'm going it alone.
[More] I received a high NT measurement of 8.4mm with septated cystic hygroma and subsequently had a CVS which came back clear. An amnio, infection testing, 2 x fetal echo's, genetic counselling and NUMEROUS scans later I have gone from a 10-15% chance of a good outcome up to 90%. Still nervous about the possibility of genetic syndromes that I was unable to test for but holding onto the hope it'll all turn out for the best. He's teaching me a thing or two about strength and determination already!
I just read your status...oh no, how is everything, any new information yet? You and your darling son will be in my thoughts and prayers. I can't imagine how scared you must be....why why why do things have to happen to our babies? I'm crossing my fingers that all turns out well for you.
