    I am 12 weeks today and we had our nuchal translucency ultrasound scan this morning. We have one baby and there is a heartbeat - my DH said it sounded strong.

    BUT to our shock, they found that our unborn child has a cystic hygroma, which we are told is fluid underneath the skin at the back of the babies neck. They said there is a lot of fluid in the neck of my baby's measured 11 mm. The normal is 3mm. Apparently, the presence of cystic hygroma could mean Turner's Syndrome!!!

    We are going for CVS on Monday afternoon and we will get answers by Wednesday.

    But either way, it is not a good sign.

    I am devastated..... This is soooo hard.

    I understand your pain and how hard this is going to be. Our daughter had had fluid that measured 6.6mm and she did have Turners Syndrome. She did not make it to birth.

    I am hoping that the fluid will decrease as the baby gets a bit more developed, and I certainly am hoping for the best for you. I have everything crossed for both of you, and if you need to talk to someone, let me know.

    Good luck and you're in my prayers.
