Hi
A friend suggested I give this a try so here goes. This year has been a bit of a rollercoaster to say the least. In June I miscarried at 7 weeks which was a horible experience in itself. I got pregnant straight away but at the 12 week scan was given a 1:2 chance of chromasonal abnormalities, so I had the CVS and it came back positive for Edwards. I felt like at this point we had no choice but to terminate, the chances of the baby actually making it through the pregnancy was slim and to loose it after it was born would have been even more devastating. So now I am wondering if it is ever going to happen. I have a very healthy 2 year old and am 36 and never thought having another one would be so difficult. Would love to chat to others in a similar positionxx

Hi Tori

Briefly, I am sorry for the experience you have had. I too have a healthy 2 year old, am 34, and have had 2 terminations in the last 12 months, both for conditions incompatible with life, detected at the nuchal scan and then at the anomaly scan. I too am very anxious.

There are a few of us in the same boat on this thread
