After lots of deliberation with myself and just feeling like something might be wrong with this pregnancy, I elected to have an early U/S. It was at 12 weeks 3 days, and the tech found a Cystic Hygroma on the baby's neck. We did the CVS and the initial keryotype has come back clear. The in-house lab has just started doing microarrays and offered us those results for FREE (usually $2500). We didn't think we would pay for that, but we welcome any information we can get.
This pregnancy is not turning out like I thought and we're facing weeks of waiting and more ultrasounds to look for potential problems. Having a hygroma is very highly correlated with many different kinds of defects in babies.
So..... feeling tenuous and also hopeful. I may not be around much here, but have found other support online and IRL with other families experiencing similar things. I really haven't seen anything like this on MDC, which is too bad.
Love and blessings on all of our pregnancies!
