I had ultrasound yesterday that showed the baby had an enlarged head. The Dr said they need more testing but that it looked consistant with Hydrocephalus ( water on the brain). Im an MA so I understand this from a medical POV however My question is from a parent POV..How do you handle the kind of care your baby needs? Is it much different than caring for a child without special needs? What did you do pre-baby & post-baby to cope with the worry & "what if"s that came along?
Im worried & overwhemled at the moment...stories and advise welcome
*Edit-I should add that abortion is Not an option here...my baby moves, kicks, has a heartbeat & is starting to hear outside the womb :-)
