hello ladies, basically looking for some support..
I went for my 12 week scan yesterday, was 12+2. Baby structurally is fine, no defects, everything how it should be, but it has absolutely no space, the sac is quite small so baby is very curled up.
since my scan at 11 weeks baby has grown, it was 41.7mm and then yesterday 58mm. So that's good news.
my placenta is slightly enlarged and I have some slight fluid loss but we don't know why. The lady who scanned me again yesterday evening did a detailed screening scan, where she found that baby was completely fine but its heartbeat was 179bpm which was fast, and there was a slight loss of fluid.
She also said there is a slim chance of T13 syndrome due too fetal heartbeat and small loss of fluid. But no features are seen so far. Obviously if baby does have t13 i got told I will have to terminate. Which I found very upsetting of her to say in this cold way she did. I have bloods Monday so should tell us more.
I now feel complately in the dark to whether baby is going to be ok, the odds say not really but I'm clinging onto the positives.
just need the reassurance and support.

Hello Beth. I didn't want to read your post and run. I am so sorry for what you are going through right now.
i went through something similar around 18 months ago. At our 12 week scan they discovered our baby had too much fluid around it and the nuchal measurement was too large so we were sent for a cvs. The results took around a week to come back but our little one had T18 (Edwards syndrome).
I know it is hard to stay positive in these situations but i would hold on to the fact they said there was a slim chance that something could be wrong rather than there was definitely something wrong (we were told definitively that there was something wrong and not to get our hopes up).
I hope the blood tests went ok today and that you have your answers soon. I really do understand how awful the not knowing can be and really hope that everything is ok with your little one.
