My husband and I just found out our baby is a little boy!! But it seems the ultrasound tech saw some other stuff on the ultrasound and our dr referred us to a specialist. At the specialist he saw some fluid around the babies chest and its causing his heart to be more pushed to the middle. They also looked at the back of his neck, they were concerned bc they said he had a thicker neck area, which could mean downs possibly. But bc of where the baby was located they were having a very hard time finding a complete circle for his skull, and he is concerned that it could be anencephany, I had never heard of this word before but once he explained to me that it means your babies skull isn't all the way formed and that thick neck could really mean his brain is growing outside of his skull I lost it. He explained to me this is fatal and wanted to do an amino to find out more. We had the amino on Tuesday morning and are hoping to start getting some of the results in today, the most important testing the skull issue will come in about 7 days.
We are absolutely heart broken and pray these test come back with good news. my amino fluid was clear with a slight yellow tent, which the dr said was good. I have read that if a baby does have anencephaly then it's fairly obvious by the amino color, but I can't seem to find what that color is, does anyone know anything more about this??
