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.

I'm so so sorry that this has happened to you. I don't have any experience in this but didn't want to leave the thread without saying something. All I can say is try and stay positive. There is still hope. Some professionals don't realise that some things they say can be far too blunt and upsetting. I would phone midwife/doctor on Monday and ask for this to be explained fully to you. Maybe they could give you some answers/reassurance. Thinking of you and your family. Let us know how you get on xxx

^^Thank you Hun, really sweet of you to reply. I did ring my midwife and she's said it's a case of holding on in there, as until we have bloods and the next scan it's out of our control. Which I know really. There are positives, baby is there and growing, and NT was only 1.2mm which is low I think, and I wonder if heartbeat was higher because I was panicking? May just be clinging onto straws though. I thought t13 was to do with the fluid behind baby's neck and she didn't seem overly concerned about that, I thought they only worried if it was 3mm or more?
Slightly scared about fluid loss and the fact my sac is quite small, poor baby is so curled up! Don't know if it's to do with my placenta being enlarged! So many questions, I will speak to my consultant tommorow.
Thank you for your reply I'll let you know xxxx
