I just had NT scan - not so great news for us. 1:4 risk for trisomy 18 - completely devastated. This is supposed to be a happy time :-(
Hello ladies, at what stage have you felt flutters?
Over the last couple of days I have been getting these sensations like popcorn popping or little rumbles. Are these flutters or am I going mad? I know it is not wind and it started on Monday during the staff meeting. It took me a while to realise what happened at first. Then I got a little excited! I am 15 weeks and 2 days. I get around one/two flutters a day.
Bub has an exomphalos. The report says "exomphalos containing bowel only". They also said one of my blood tests was a little bit low but not sure which? All other parts of the anatomy appeared normal. What happened with you mrsjaguar?
Lucky you Pip. No flutters for me yet.
I don't know much about exomphalos - but that is when an organ might be forming close to/on the outside of the baby's body, from google? Hoping all is well and that it might just require some medical work when bub is born. What's the plan for you guys now?
Yes that's right - it's little bowel is growing outside. We are going to have a repeat scan done tomorrow at a different place that specializes in obstetric scans. Here we will have genetic counseling - I guess to better understand our options.
Mrsjaguar - were u given a statistic or just told high risk? Thanks for sharing your info with me.
