Anatomy scan today with some possible worries.
I thought I'd update you. We had a 20 week anatomy scan today and my mind's not totally at ease as there were a few possible problems noted. Firstly the baby (still probably a girl) is measuring behind by about a week. The measurements are consistent with each other all over her body, just a week behind. I think that the uniformity of the measurements is possibly a good sign, but it still bothers me slightly as I worry the fibroids are stealing all the good stuff from her.
Her right foot is also showing possible twisting, and they couldn't get a good look as she wasn't moving, but it was twisted inwards. It's not clear if she's just holding it that way possibly because of lack of space, or if it's something that will need treatment after birth. Either way, it's not too serious.
The other abnormal finding was the skull, which appears to be 'slightly compressed'. It's a nice uniform shape, but not a perfect circle, it's more an oval. Didn't look horrific or anything, I'd never have thought there was anything wrong with the shape, but they spent ages measuring and remeasuring. The doctor, who to be honest I didn't really get much of a feel for as he didn't talk a lot, said it could be being compressed by the largest fibroid which is now 15x11 cm. We have to go back in a week to check all these issues again, and to check the face and lips, which were hidden by the placenta. There is plenty fluid in there, just what they would expect, so again, that's a positive sign.
But anyway, it's not quite the happy experience we hoped for, and we didn't even get a picture because she wouldn't show her face. I really hope next week will bring some answers!!!
