As much love & support as I received from this board when I had a missed m/c last fall, I was hoping to never be back. That said, here I am - full of devastation & sadness.
We opted to do a full-integrated screening for potential birth defects, and today was our ultrasound portion of the screening.
We found out that our baby has six significant birth defects, and that the chance of survival through pregnancy is less than 10%. The doctor & genetic counselor told us that if the baby made it through pregancy, he/she would not likely live very long.
We opted to have an amnio today to get more information about what caused the birth defects, and we're crossing our fingers that they were chromosonal instead of genetic. If they were chromosonal, the genetic counselor told us that we have approximately a 1% chance of it happening again.
We are planning on having a D&E within the next week, and I am praying that we will get to be back on the pregnancy journey again soon.
Thanks in advance for your positive thoughts & prayers.
