Update on my baby possibly having down syndrome
Going into my high risk Dr's appointment Wednesday I was praying and hoping for better news after hearing a week earlier my baby had a thick nuchal fold of 7mm. But sadly this appointment crushed all my hopes. My baby's nuchal fold was now showing it at 3cm. Not only that she also had deformities. Her chin was either not there or very small, her hands and feet were deformed and they couldn't see her stomach.. I can't even pur into words how I'm feeling. I decided to have the amnio done and I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst. I was hoping for a miracle now it seems like there's no more hope as they are suspecting things like trisomy 13,trisomy 18, or skeletal displacia. Just can't believe this is happening to my baby girl. Seeing her move on the ultrasound was heartbreaking because she looked normal and fine. Any other Mommy's had a similar experience??

Yes I had the amnio and it was slightly painful. Should get the results this Wednesday on my next Dr's appointment. This has been the longest wait ever and I've just been trying to prepare myself for everything. Thank you
