Nuchal Ultrasound

I've been holding on to the results for the past few days and running them through my head... The scan didn't go at all as hoped, although I know it's not conclusive until we have further testing. The problem is that baby's growth has also slowed down. I should have been measuring 12 wks 4 days (taking into account the week he's always been behind) but was 12wks exactly... that means that in a week, he or she only grew by 2 days. This scares the crap out of me!
As far as the nuchal scan, my risk of down's went from one in 380something to 1 in 24... again, not what we were hoping to see. I have an appt on Tuesday with the genetic specialist, and am hoping to get in next week to have another ultrasound... I really need to know what's happening develomentally.
Sorry that I didn't update right away, you've all been so wonderful in supporting me so far. I just don't know how to take this latest upset. What a hell of a ride these last three months have been!

  11. Oh Sherri, my heart breaks for you. I had my Nuchal scan this week also, and although my hubby and I were looking forward to the ultrasound, we both independently got REALLY nervous because we knew that the doctor could possibly give us really terrible news. I am so sorry that you are going through MORE waiting to find out what is going on with your little peanut.
    On a side note, my friend had a baby in January, and for her FULL pregnancy her doctors were freaking out because her baby wasn't growing properly, and the head wasn't growing, and there was a HIGH probability that her baby would be born with severe developmental issues. Cut to Jan 17th, and her little daughter was born perfectly happy and healthy and normally proportioned etc... A friend of mine once said they call it the "practice" of medicine for a reason.
    Please keep us posted on what you find out with the genetic specialist on Tuesday.
    I will keep my fingers crossed for you and your wee one.
    Hugs
    Brooke

  12. Growing issues......but what does this mean? Thinking of you while the 'experts' try to figure it all out. The miracle of life is also its biggest mystery...
