    Default Ultrasound Update

    UPDATE:

    Today SO and I had our ultrasound at our regular doctor office(10 am). Within a few short minutes the Dr. pointed out that there seemed to be fluid in the chest cavity and he wanted to refer us to a different (high risk) Dr. I immediately began to bawl. We had to wait in the office to see if the high risk Dr could fit us in as they were closing in just and hour (noon). We waited for about 30 minutes and then were sent to see him. They took us to the back at around 12:15 or so. We had an ultrasound and got to new our little boy (Kamdyn Carter). The Dr. came in an took a look with the ultra sound machine and confirmed that Kamdyn has hyrdrops (fluid in the chest and abdomen) and that one of the ventricles are much too small. The fluid is pushing the heart onto the right side of the body. There is a 20-30% that the baby won't make it during this pregnancy and that if the baby does then it will need heart surgery when he comes out. Kamdyn is growing correctly except for these problems. His heart beat was 144 which is right in the normal range. I had an amniocenteses done and we will hopefully know more next week... if not then the following week. I have no idea what the plan is from here and the Dr. said they will come up with a plan as soon as they have a diagnosis.

    Please keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you ladies. I still feel like I'm dreaming.. and then I feel like I can handle it and then I break down again. It's been a pretty miserable day. I wish I could just wake up and this wouldn't be real.

    I am so sorry Maddie. Hydrops is what the doctor said happens in antibody pregnancies too. I am hoping that they will be able to do some of the same procedures for your son that they could with antibody pregnancies. I will keep you all in my prayers.
