Quoting Elle With Three &1/2:" My daughter was diagnosed with Hydrops at 18 weeks. We were told that our "best option" was termination ... [snip!] ... years ago.). They are ultrasound guided and since ultrasounds have improved so much in that time, the risks are much lower."
Thanks Liz. They did test my Amnio fluid yesterday. It was painful and scary but worth it. They originally thought she had a chromosome problem like down syndrom. But looking at her brain, skill and bone structure they said she is fine. They said she has a good heart as well. I listened to it for 5 1/2 hours new years day as I lay in L & D. I am not giving up hope. I might be selfish for wanting to keep her even though she will not make it. But I would not have wanted my mom to give up on me. I was given a chance, so I am giving Gracie a change. I asked about a stunt being placed in her and the doctor said, "No there is just too much fluid, it would not work". Well I am not giving up hope. I just pray to god a miracle happens and she somehow makes it.
Afterall she made it this long, through two hospital visits for bleeding, I can feel her moving right now as I type.
I just wish they would support me in my decision to keep this pregnanct going till god take her home or she is delivered. Its hard to keep it together for Kale as well. Him seeing me cry and be upset is not fair to him, so I am trying to be as normal as possible, to only cry why he is busy, where he won't see me. Life is not fair but I know god wouldn't have put her on this earth without a reason. After all Kale was born Christmas day at 32 weeks, my little Miracle baby. So maybe I am just suppose to be the mother of miracles.
