See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Hello, My name is Caitlin and im 18. Let me tell you my story.
I found out i was pregnant so i called and made a doc apt. I had irregular periods and didn't know when my last one was so my doc sent me for an early ultrasound. (which had to be done at the hospital cuz he did not do them at his office) The doc from the ultrasound came in the room after it was done and told me they found something and i needed to contact my doc asap. When i called my doc they had already called him and told him what was going on. He told me to come in right then. When i got their he explained to me they found a growth on the back of the neck and i needed to go to a specialist to get it checked out. The doctor their told me he thought it could be down syndrome cuz that is the first sign of it. After a while he offered to do a amnio. I agreed to it.We found that its a girl and she had turner syndrom. We watched as the last couple of months went by and her growth went away. (: yay. I ended up going to the hospital on march 4Th 2012. (my bday) cuz i was having bad discharge and pain. They hooked me up to the monitors and found her heart rate keep dropping so they took me in for an emergency c section. My daughter is now almost 6 months old. She is my pride and joy. . If you look at her you would not think anything i wrong till i point things out like puffy hands and feet etc. The doc's say she is 2 months ahead on the development chart. She very smart, (:
