After being in the hospital overnight for a failed NST and Biophysical Profile Ultrasound - they found some findings on our ultrasound that are new and worrisome. Baby continues to grow at an alarming rate - estimated at 7/11 at this point, they also found enlarged kidneys, some fluid around his belly and testicles. I have a high level of amniotic fluid - which I was told was from my GD. However, the doctor was very persistant about getting a pic of his face after seeing baby stick his tongue in and out...we now know he was looking for - and found - an enlarged tongue.
All these things together lead us to a probable diagnosis of Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. It is an overgrowth disorder/chromosome disorder - and apparently is more common in couples who did "reproductive therapy." This statement leavdes me feeling guilty - did we press too hard?
We were switched to the high risk Doctor and we're told we will probably need to deliver via csection at the university hospital over an hour away. Apparently his airway is going to be a huge issue at birth.
We are shell shocked as everything was fine on 3d ultrasound just 2 weeks ago. We are scared, but also grateful that this just happened to be discovered before his birth, so he can be born in the right place with the right specialists. If anyone has any experience it would be greatly appreciated.
