Has anyone had an abnormal anatomy scan?

I went for my 20 weeks  scan last week & was all excited coz my 12weeks scan was all normal & my triple marker tests were also negative. But unfortunately all was not well....my little baby is perfect in every way besides a spine deformity called hemivertebra. We are devastated..the last week has been so overwhelming. ..full of appointments with specialists. Im still awaiting my NIPT results.Suddenly the whole good feeling about pregnancy has vanished & everyday I can feel myself getting more & more sad.Are there any other ladies who are going through /went through a similar situation? How are you handling it?

We are also in this exact situation- hemivertabrae is in lower spine. We go back to hospital in eight weeks. Naturally I'm worried sick for my little boy. This is an IVF baby - thought I'd had my share of grips!!
