I'm not familiar with microcephaly and just had to look it up. What I've read seemed vague. I'm sorry I can't get give you advice. Just know I'll be praying for you and you little miracle!

Well they didnt catch the small head sympotms until my 33 week appointment. So they have been monitoring since. I wasn't familiar with it either, Im not sure if it just means small head or if there can be more wrong.

Lots of prayers and thoughts for you and your little boy!

Did the Dr. say microcephaly or microENcephaly? Microcephaly typically is small or uneven head circumference for age. A couple of kids in the Dec. 2010 PR were diagnosed with it after birth. They wore the cute little helmets to help shape their heads and now you would never know. MicroEnCephaly is a different and involves the brain size. I don't know much about it.

Please keep us posted.
