    Well HE will be lovely no matter what! My little chap had trisomy 18 (as did one of my brothers) but he looked so perfect when I laid eyes on him (I lost the twins at 15w as my waters broke & I had to terminate).
    I'm also a nanny so I just have love for all little people.
    It's a shock when you think something isn't right with your little person but I promise it will be okay 😊
    Thank you for your beautiful words. You reminded me of the love I already have for this baby, and if he does happen to have a cleft lip, well then we'll just deal with it when the time comes. It won't make me love him any less. I'm actually really looking forward to him joining us earth side for big cuddles

    And I'm still getting used to saying "him" instead of "baby" haha

    It was extremely frustrating, especially when you're concerned. But I understand why they do it.
    Yep. I completely understand why they do it, it's just so frustrating when they give you a piece of the puzzle (the photo) to take home and you're left scratching your head wondering if it all looks ok.

    It's so hard, but unfortunately ultrasound techs are not allowed to disclose anything as it is not their place; they just take the photos and measurements... Frustrating... But hope u get answers soon

    ^^^ this!
    Our u/s tech told us we were going to mc! So unprofessional.
    Technically they aren't trained to give results. Just take the measurements. I know it's a pain in the @rse but they were just doing it the right way.

    Try not to stress too much. A cleft lip is fixable. A good friend's baby had a cleft lip. He was still a cutie and had no problems breastfeeding. He had an operation when he was a few months old and is now 5 and you can't even notice the scar.

    Thanks so much everyone. I think after the initial scare I've settled down a lot after thinking much clearer about the possibility of a cleft lip/palate. I've seen some before and after photos of surgery and I'm quite amazed at the results. I've also read some stories of successfully breastfeeding with a cleft lip which was reassuring. I can only hope I've been worrying over nothing and my baby boy turns out just fine. But, even if he does happen to have issues, he will still be my perfect, handsome little man.

    Got the official report today. Turns out baby boy is perfect! I'll still get another scan done in a few weeks to be sure, but the report says all is perfectly fine. Thanks so much for the support everyone xx
