    Default Hi everyone! New to group. Turner Syndrome Angel Mom

    I just wanted to say hello. My husband and I just started trying again this month (this week to be precise!). We lost our baby girl last summer. She was stillborn at 5 months. She had Turner Syndrome and along with it, a large cystic hygroma, hydrops, and heart defect. I think the most challenging thing about getting pregnant again is trying not to worry too much. Now I know what can go wrong. I'm also worried about being able to get pregnant again. I feel like I waited too long. (I'm 34, but they say 35 is a critical threshold.) I learned that I have a large fibroid on top of everything else. Aside from all of the negatives, I am looking forward to being pregnant again - and especially having a baby after waiting for so long. Hopefully, everything will go our way this time.

    So sorry for your loss and that you have found your way here. My loss was of a different nature, but i have the same fears of problems with any future pregnancies (I am 36). However, my logical mind tells me that overwhelmingly the chances of any problems are very slim. I am sure it is difficult after your loss......I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a healthy baby in the near future.

    Welcome to the board. I am truly sorry for your loss. The worry and fears are quite normal after a loss unfortunately. I hope you are able to get pg again soon.

    i am so glad i found your post. i am currently going through this same loss. we have been told the same things - heart abnormalities, turner's, more defects. we meet with the genetic counselor on tuesday. i could use some advice. how did you cope with carrying the baby knowing what was coming? why did you chose to not terminate the pg (sorry to be so forward, i don't mean to be insensitive)?

    lots of love to you!

    (Pg ment)

    Congrats! I saw the new pg'cy ticker in your siggy (which I had to remove, unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of this board).

    Best wishes to you for a healthy pregnancy!

    -Mary
