We had an U/S a few days ago because my cycles were off and this wasn't a planned pregnancy, so my Dr. wanted an accurate date. I'm 8w6d. She just called me today to let me know the radiologist who looked at our U/S was concerned. He found the skull and brain to be malformed. My Dr seemed very concerned and wants me to see a High Risk Specialist to evaluate the situation further. She didn't give me any more info to go on.
This is obviously very difficult news to get, by I'm trying to remain positive. I want to know if there are any other mamas in this group who have had (with past pregnancies) strange stuff on their ultrasounds, and what that turned out to mean for them. I'm considering the possibility that this is a techincal or interprative error. I'm also considering that although the skull may not be developing ideally, that in the end the deformation will be minor or in a perfect world, correctable. Of course I remain aware that this baby might have severe problems, and/or that the pregnancy may spontaneously abort because of them.
I was hoping you all could share with me what you know or point me to resources you trust. I'm fairly mistrustful of Western Medicine in general, so I'm trying to gather all the info I can in advance, including what types of B.S. the doctors often tell people in these situations so that I can know what to ask or what to say.
Sending out good vibes to all your bellies tonight!
