Went to the dr in Orlando today for "low amniotic fliud" well we found out a whole lot more than that. found out baby has a birth defect in which the structure that connects the two hemispheres of the brain (the corpus collosum) is partially or completely absent... :*(
Since we found out its a GIRL!! its more common in girls, can have anything from mental retardation, to seizures, abnormalities in the vertebra of the spine, and lesions on the retina and so much more.. worse case scenareo we can lose the baby, before or after birth. of luck out and the baby have slight problems.
the did an Amneosentosis on me, so im just hanging out at home. my bf has been quiet since we got the news. taking it all in. we very worried. but its the chromosones , its nothing we did nor can control. we find out more about it in 14 days. this dr was amazing and so very nice. i wish i could have him mine. he also said the baby just a tad undersize. but the low fluid is least of his worries.... so Merry christmas to us huh?

Sorry. Though my pregnancy news and thereafter wasn't this bad I had problems since he was 25 weeks in womb. He has a kidney problem which they still do not know what it is after so many tests and hell hes been through pricked and probed since a infant, he also may have cerebral palsy which is a big supprise since symptoms usually arise around their first birthday. I wish you all the luck and I can relate somewhat to your pain.
