Chromosonal Test inconclusive

I dont know what to think....
They tested the placenta and came back inconclusive.
I keep telling myself that I know it was a chromo problem.Sloans legs were misshaped and had no toes and had cystic hygroma and edema...yet I cant stop thinking it was still my fault..even now with no answers

I am so deeply sorry for your loss ..

It in NO way is your fault, please don't think like this.
The tests on my Ava were also inconclusive and I waited like 7 weeks for them.

They couldn't tell what or if anything was wrong with her and why I lost her.
I know it makes this loss so much worse when you just don't know.
I am so deeply sorry you are going through this, but don't blame yourself.

Chromosomal issues are not caused by us, they just happen and it is nobody's fault in the least. If you ever need a friend I am always around.. XO Andrea

We had tests done when we lost Silver but my OB told me not to expect much because he passed at 14 weeks and wasn't born until almost 17. The tissue samples they sent to pathology were just too degraded. All that came back in the test results was "normal male." Even so, she told me that she was nearly certain that whatever happened, it was a chromosomal abnormality. He was only developed on one side and on the other he had 6 fingers and 6 toes. I know for sure that's what happened, in my heart. I understand your frustration though. It's so hard not having definitive answers. My OB made sure that I understood, even without answers, that it wasn't my fault. It wasn't anything that I did or didn't do. Sometimes it just happens for no reason. Sometimes I still wonder, what if this or that. But you can't keep thinking that and dwelling on it or it'll tear you up inside.

I hope you can find peace with all of this eventually. I am so sorry for your loss and also the lack of answers.
