Microcephaly on 20 week scan with multiple anatomic defects

Sara - posted on 09/02/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




I am hoping we can find some support here. My husband and I just went for our 19 week scan and the ultrasound showed the baby's head is less than 1 percentile. The cerebellum looks a little deformed. There is fluid gathering behind the cerebellum. The heart has a VSD and and ASD, which means there are two large holes in the heart. The doctor could not find where the aorta connects to the neck. Both kidneys are dilated and the intestines is "bright". We did the genetic testing last week and are waiting to hear back to find out what is causing this.
I was wondering if anyone has a child with sever microcephaly and other issues, we just are trying to get a grip on what we may expect.
