  • im sorry to hear that! ive been in your shoes (kind of)! my daughter's head was an abnormal shape in the ultrasounds so i had to see a specialist! if they think there is fluid they will probably want you to do an amneo(draw fluid from around the baby for tests) which i done and it will test the baby for birth defects! they didnt know what was wrong with my daughter even after that test but she was actually born without a skull in the back of her head! if i were you i would do the amneo to test it if you have that option!
