Here goes anyways lol...
My dd is coming up on 6m on the 4th of August. We have an appointment on October 30th with genetics.
So some back story on Chloe.
In all my ultrasounds they found a spot on her heart that never went away. When I was about 30 weeks we got sent to Sick Kids Hospital in T.O for a fetal echo, what they saw was apparently nothing that seemed to affect her heart.
On that trip we also went and met with genetics to talk about the percentage of her having Down Syndrome. I opted out of the amnio testing for it due to the risks ( I was not comfortable with it) and it did not matter either way she was still going to be loved the same.
I was prepared to care for her if she was born with Down Syndrome.
So When i had her on Feb 4th she was taken to the NICU right away (6 hrs before I got to meet her)
The Dr's said we were in the clear of her having Down Syndrome. But she was born with Choanal Atresia..small nasal passages (she can not breath through her nose) she has a displaced anus as well as a small top pallete. Apparently nothing wrong with her heart at all.
So fast forward to now...like I said she will be 6m soon. She was born at 7lbs 8oz and 21 inches long. She is now only 10lbs 8oz and 22 inches long. And under the third percentile.
They are thinking she may have a growth dissorder, cause she is not growing at all (only a little bit at a time)
So this is my weird question...I am posting some pics of her, do you see any facial features that comply with any known dissorders? They said before they test her they look at her face and hands feet to see any common features with any dissorders.
Sorry for the long story I just thought it would make it easier to know what I am talking about....
2 months old
This has me so worried I am having a hard time sleeping the appointment is coming up so close now. IDK...
They also think she may not be growing due to her not being able to breath through her nose..that she maybe burning more calories then she is getting, cause she has to work hard to breath makes scense...I guess.
Everyone around me says they believe she is just small and not to worry about it, but its hard not too. Do you see anything at all in features???
