I hope Im posting this in the right spot-
Our 20week scan on wednesday revealed that our much wanted and loved little girl has some very serious chromosomal issues. The dr told us the likely hood of severe retardation is high.Ive had an amnio to hopefully give us a clearer picture - results will be back in 10-12 days , Ive also had the FISH test which came back clear.We will seek another opinion from a genetic counselor later this week but Termination of the pregnancy is now likely late next week or the following
We are so heartbroken.
To help prepare myself for the coming days ahead, Im hoping to get some answers to some hard questions.
I know it must be so incredibly hard to relive this period of time in your lives but your help would be so much appreciated.
How long after we make the gut wrenching decision to terminate will the process start? How is it even undertaken? Will I be knocked out? (I really hope so) Then, Im expecting to be medically induced?
My mind is a blur, my heart is broken, just seeking somewhat of a clearer picture. Thankyou
