VSD, short long bones, and cleft palate?

Hey everyone! I'm 32 weeks and 4 days, we have been going to a genetic specialist once a month because our son had some anomalies at his 20 week u/s. He has a ventrical septal defect (vsd) cleft palate and lip, and short long bones.. We opted no for the testing because but we know he is at risk for trisomy 13, and 18.. I'm just wondering if anyone else has gone through this before? He has normal fluid levels, his weight is good, and he's active but the doctors cannot tell me if he will be okay.. I'm worried about getting my hopes up that everything will be alright but at the same time I'm trying not to stress to reduce any risk for him.. Any thoughts or experience? I'm done googling syndromes..

  • Thank you and thoughts and prayers for you and your baby to ❤️ It's difficult finding out anything is "wrong" with your baby.. I was scared enough about having a healthy baby boy, now I feel even more unprepared because I don't know what to expect..
