I'm posting to just ask for some prayers. The ultrasound today did not go well. We couldn't see the sex because something is protruding from the belly down. Best case scenario, it is gastroschisis. Worse case it is protruding from the umbilical cord and could include the bladder. They think there may be other genetic abnormalities but it is too early to see. I go back in 2wks to have another look and discuss an amnio. Please just pray everything will be ok and I'll be able to keep it together until then.

On top of that, my dh lost his job last week so I could really use your thoughts and prayers.

Oh my goodness, that is so terrible! I will pray for good news during your next ultrasound and that your husband finds a new job soon. I am so sorry you have to go through all this worry and uncertainty

I will certainly be praying for you, your husband, and your little one. God knows what is going on with your baby and how much you love that baby. His Son was a baby once, too. I will be praying that God will give you His divine comfort and peace, especially during this tough two week wait. I believe that God answers prayer and this baby will be very prayed for. A big hug for you!

I was born with gastroschisis in 1981. My mother did not have the advance warning that anything was wrong, and my doctors did an amazing job treating me when I was born. I was in the NICU for a couple of weeks, but I have had NO long-term affects from the gastroschisis. I think knowing ahead of time puts you ahead of the game. I will pray that this is all it is.

I'm actually praying that is what it is, but there is another abdominal wall defect that I can't remember the name of, that they think it is more likely to be. The Dr.said it looks encased. She said there is a 30% chance of downs, a 50% chance of other chromosomal abnormalities and a heart defect. I shut down and didn't ask any questions other than if I HAD to have an amnio. She just said we'd discuss it in 2wks.

I knew this pregnancy was different. I've been so sick, but I'm a complete wreck right now. We told the kids about the baby but they don't understand. Every time they talk about how excited they are, I start bawling.

*big hugs* I always wish that when something like this happens you had a representation of all your fears and hurts that you could beat up. Whenever my son would get horribly sick and I would get so frustrated I kept wishing that I had a punching bag labeled "double ear infection", etc that I could wail on. Now I wish I had one that had "Downs Fears" that I could strangle. Try to find a release or just try to lose yourself in the holidays for the next week. There is nothing you can do now. I would advise you to read nothing about what it could possibly be until your doctor can give you a better idea of what is going on.
