Update--In tears re: negative prognosis from NT scan
I went for my nuchal translucency scan last week and the ultrasound tech discovered a large pocket of fluid behind the baby's neck (he called it a cystic hygroma.) The space behind the neck, in a normal scan, can be up to 2.5 - 3mm. This was 7mm, and extended all the way to baby's trunk. We're looking at a very high risk of chromosomal abnormalities, including Trisomy 21, 18 and 13. I'm so sad about this. We scheduled an amniocentesis for when I am 16 weeks. The waiting is going to be really difficult.
Just had to share somewhere since we haven't even announced my pregnancy to our families yet, beyond the very closest members. We were waiting for our first ultrasound to make the announcement, and that was it. I'll be showing soon so I guess we'll have to say something then, but I'm not looking forward to sharing all the details.
Any advice on how to go about sharing the news? Or not?
