Just thought I would post an update here. I had an amnio this morning. It didn't go too bad. It didn't hurt at all, just a bit crampy now. We should have the preliminary report in 2 to 3 days. We know a few more things now. The baby's spine is still curved. Both feet are clubbed feet, and the baby has Omphalocele which is a deformity in the abdominal wall. The doctor said today with all the new markers they believe the baby has Trisomy 18. Hopefully we can get some real answers soon so the waiting and not knowing part will be over.
I'm glad the amnio itself wasn't too bad, the thought of that test always scared me. I'm sorry you're having to wait so long for answers, I'm sure that's the hardest part. I'll be praying for you and baby. *big hugs*
Thoughts and prayers are sent your way. Like Rachel, the amio test has always scared me, but I'm glad that it went ok and that you were able to get some answers. Thank you so much for updating us, I was wondering how things were going for you.
I feel pretty overwhelmed right now. They don't even give me ultrasound photos of the baby. I asked them to check gender today and she just kind of waved her hand at me and said the amnio would tell us. I really hate that I don't even have any photos since the baby was 11 weeks old. I'm definitely going to bring it up to my regular OB next week. It's like it somehow diminishes the pregnancy or how I feel about the baby just because something is wrong? It really upsets me.
That's awful that they haven't given you pictures or anything.. I would definitely say something to your OB about it. No matter what the circumstances, that's still your baby and you still love him/her!
