i had a scan on wed. i was exactly 10 weeks pregnant. they told me that there is a layer of fluid under the baby's skin which is a sign of a chromosone abnormality like down syndrome. then they told me that my baby's heart can just stop beating any day now and there is nothing they can do about it, i'm back in for another scan today to see if the heart is still beating because they dont expect the baby to survive much longer and i've to go in every few days until the heart stops! i cant get my head around it all...its like the doctors have just given up without even trying anything! i cant accept that my baby is going to die no matter what i do....when i had the scan on wed the heartbeat was strong and there was a lot of movement. i'm so upset i can't eat or sleep and all i do is cry all the time. has anyone ever had this kind of thing show up on a scan? is there really no hope?????
I am so so so sorry for what you are going through. I didnt want to read and run. I hope that things change and you get better news. Have they mentioned terminating the pregnancy? This was suggested to me when my waters broke at 19 1/2 weeks in November, it was NEVER an option to do it. I would never have forgiven myself. I think nature will do what it needs to. I have read of other saying they were advised to terminate but they didnt and their babies pulled through. I dont know anything about your babies condition but I just thought they might suggest you do this & maybe you can be prepared for when/if they say something like this.
Big hugs xxxx I hope everything turns out ok for you xxx
