Greetings everyone. I am new to the board. I just found out that my husband and I are expecting a baby a week ago. Although we are excited, I am nervous. Although I have not been to the OB yet, I know that this will be considered a high risk pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I really came through the pregnancy all right. However, she was born missing most of her left arm. Although it doesn't really affect her, the doctor told me that if I ever got pregnant again, it would be considered high risk because of her birth defect and I'd have to go see a maternal/fetal specialist and have several ultrasounds, etc. In other words, this is going to be super expensive. Thank the Gods for insurance!

But anyway, that's why I am here in a nutshell.

Welcome to the board. I'm so sorry that happened to your daughter. But glad it doesn't affect her too much.

Congrats on your pregnancy. I hope all goes well for you. We are here when you need to vent. Least you will get to see your little one very often.

Do they know what caused the defect? Is there a way they can check for it besides the constant ultrasounds?

I get ultrasounds every 2 weeks since I hit 20 weeks. And yep - thank goodness for insurance.

I honestly have no idea why it happened that she lost her arm. In the 20 week ultrasound she had both hands. We have the pic of that. But when she came out, her left one was gone. The doc said it was called Amniotic Band Syndrome, where basically the fibrous bands in the uterus somehow got into the amniotic sack and literally amputated her arm while she was in me. They said there's a one in 3000 chance it can happen again. I know that's not a lot, but it's still scary.
