I am currently 22 weeks pregnant and was confirmed at ultrasound 2 weeks ago my baby girl has cleft lip and palate. I was told by doctor that there is 2% chance of chromosone disorder related to cleft lip and palate.
I decided not to do amnio as don't want to take risk of miscarriage of healthy baby.
But just got news from my mum that my cousin (mothers sisters daughter) recently in past 2 years had a stillborn baby at 4 months with Edwards Syndrome and it *could* be hereditary.
My ultrasound was normal except for the cleft lip/palate but I am naturally worried about possibility of Edwards Syndrome.
I never had the Downs testing at 11-13 weeks as my doctor never offered or mentioned it to me and I had forgotten about it as before this never had any fear my baby would have any problems.
I am 28 and have a 2 and half yr old perfect healthy boy.
I've been told my cousin has been tested and has an extra 18th chromosone so she has been advised to not have any more babies.
But her sister has had 2 babies(boy and girl) and brother has had a girl and they are all healthy.
Has anyone had an Edwards baby, but the ultrasounds were normal?
Or have a relative like me with Edwards?
