Hi, I posted here a few weeks ago after an abnormal NT scan (4.4 mm). Had the Qnatal and everything came back clear. We had the anatomy scan and they found several abnormalities including a heart defect, a cyst on the brain, enlarged ventricles of the brain and wide set eyes. The baby did have a nasal bone, good growth and heartbeat and was very active (dh just felt him move for the first time too) and didn't have clenched fists or a cleft lip/palate.
The abnormalities were described as severe and serious. The OB mentioned that I'm still young (implying I can have another after this.). We're scheduled for a level II us this week. I'm on the fence about amnio.
I'm losing hope for my son. We will not choose to terminate but am feeling overwhelmed by all the what ifs. I'm wondering if I'm the .01% that the screening is wrong for (I know its not diagnostic), if its something more rare, or not genetic at all. My husband was born with a heart defect and ive heard cysts are common and could resolve. I think having multiple servere abnormalities is where my hope goes out the door.
Not sure if anyone has been through something similar? I haven't found many relatable stories.
