7mm NT & CVS needing support

Hello,

Me and my husband are expecting our second child, we went for our first scan at 13 weeks and 5 days on Wednesday only to be told our NT was 7mm, the scan ended quite quickly after and we were sent to a private room and given a ton of information about CVS/amnio tests and given an appointment with Fetal medicine this morning.

This morning we met with a consultant who rescanned baby and found fluid around the heart and lungs, told us there is a 1 in 5 chance baby has Down syndrome, Edwards and Pattaus and therefore carried out a CVS. We were also told there is a 10% chance baby won’t make it to term and a 50% chance something is wrong with baby.

My heart has broken into a million pieces. Me and my husband are fit and healthy, as is our daughter and we never expected this devestating news that our baby might be poorly or we may he asked to considering ending a much wanted pregnancy.

Can anyone share a similar story or give us any hope at all of what we could be facing? I’m so scared and shocked and feel like I’m stuck in a terrible nightmare.

Xx

@KimMarie34 Thank you so much for a response, it’s been a struggle to get through each day since we found out. I am hoping the CVS results will give us hope/closure in this awful situation xx

I really hope you get your results back quickly and that your baby is well. Waiting is awful but try and look after yourself X x

Hi, you might be better off posting on the antenatal tests board, if you’ve not found your way there already. Many of the women on there have experience of something similar, and are very knowledgeable and supportive.
The 12 week scan during my last pregnancy found a high NT measurement. Unfortunately that story did not end happily; our baby had Patau’s syndrome and I chose to end the pregnancy. I really hope you have a better outcome than ours.
