at 8 weeks baby had thickness at the back of her neck which raised risks of a genetic disorder now at 20 weeks just found out she has a cystic kidney and a hole in her heart. just need any advice from anyone that might know what is going on. at 16 weeks i tried an amnio however baby moved to the area where the insertion was going so i took it as a sign not to go through with the procedure so i had them take the needle out of me and away from baby before it entered the placenta so the amnio was unsuccessful. after the 20 week ultra sound the doctor said an smnio would now just tell us what we already know. The doctor was very concerned for babys life and did not seem hopeful she would make it? i am very scared because scince 8 weeks they have given me the option to terminate because they feel there is a risk of a genetic disorder & she will not make it. i do not agree and will not terminate this pregnancy, i believe she will make it through this. also i was wondering could this cystic kidney be the genetic disorder?
