So, I am 18w1d and had my anomaly screen done yesterday and the bowel portion of the scan came back lighter than usual. The doctor said with the high results from my nuchal transuleceny test and that coming back lighter he suggested the MaterniT21 test which separates out the DNA of the baby from mine to test for T21 which causes Downs. He also mentioned testing for cystic fibrosis. After doing some reading the gene can lay dormate for some time until matched with another carrier. My OB called this morning to let me know that she sent over the lab request to do the blood test.
I am really just looking for support because if the baby has either one of this or both it will not change mine or the fathers mind on keeping the baby. I firmly believe that God gave me a special needs baby because he knew I could handle it but honestly I am scared and I am trying to be strong but it is really hard. We both have our families support in all of this but sometimes I don't feel like they understand just simply because they aren't going through it. I have gone through the whole thing of what I could've done differently to prevent this but the truth is I did nothing wrong.
I also am struggling with the thoughts of all the dreams I had with her have gone out the window ...has anyone else gone through this?
