    Hi there
    I had the amnio this morning. Before she did it she did a scan of baby which didnt show good results unfortunately. The baby showed up measuring only 16 weeks (I'm supposed to be 19+6 according to other scans and dates!) and it also showed excess fluid and skin thickening around baby. She explained that this could be markers for the 3 chromosome disorders she's going to test for with the amnio and so its probably not good news. But she also did say something about the fluid being there can be caused by infection or something. Has anyone had any experience of being told this? She said that the best thing to do would be to do the amnio and get those results back and then we would go from there! If the results did happen to come back negative then she said we would still have to investigate as to why baby is so small and about the fluid!

    So I am very numb at the moment and not sure what to do! I have hardly stopped crying since this morning.

    Can anyoen give me any advice or anything?

    Thanks :cry:

    I am going through something similar. Details are in my thread on 1st tri.

    https://www.babyandbump.com/pregnan...2-week-scan-cystic-hygroma-update-pg-5-a.html

    Nothing was mentioned about infection though. We are currently waiting for CVS resulkts, but have been told that whether it shows chromosome abnormalities (Downs, Turners, Edwards or Pataus) or not, our baby has a less than 5% chance of making it to term. There is also a concern about heart problems.

    Sorry to be so blunt. I know exactly how you are feeling, and i had messages from people who had been through similar and was glad for their honesty.

    Yes, in utero infections can cause the swelling around the baby (called fetal hydrops in medical lingo) but the differential diagnosis is huge, from chromosomal problems to heart defects, to other genetic conditions and infections. Also severe fetal anemia can cause it... My thoughts are with you hun :hugs:

    I am so sorry to hear your news. I hope the days pass quickly for you between now and getting news.

    Hydrops can cause swelling- we had to find out a lot about Hydrops after I was exposed to Slapped Cheek during this pregnancy. We knew I wasn't immune due to the tests carried out after our son died.

    Hey Hun, sorry I can't offer any personal experience but my friend has just been through something similar. Her baby has excess fluid around it's body, and a blood test result if 1:9 I think (sorry I don't know the full details, she
    was v upset) her oh has downs in his family, and she has cf in hers, so the Docs said the outlook wasn't good but came back all clear, fluid was an infection but her baby is doing fine. Fingers crossed for u hun xxxx
