birth defects

Postby yesyesyes » Tue Dec 18, 2012 4:29 pm

So heres my history. 2 healthy girls. Then a preg that was terminated at 21 wks due to severe defects. Ex. No left ventricle, chest and abdomen wall didnt close, no kidneys, extreme spina bfida (hips were by ears), clubbed hands and feet, no facial features. This was found at 20wks. Oh and no umbilical cord. Well ob called today and im getting the scan done in 2wks at 11wks to look for birth defects. Doc says it was a strike of lightning and wouldnt happen again. How do i relax. This could all be over in 3wks. Has anyone had this happen and then go on to have a healthy baby???
