Fetus has Mosaic Turner Syndrome
Clodagh posted:
I am almost 20 weeks pregnant and through amniocentesis found that the baby has 45,X [2> /46,46XX[15> Mosaic Turner Syndrome. However, the ecocardio and utrasound show everything is fine with her. Now I have to choose to terminate the pregnancy or keep the baby. I appreciate anyone who has had a similar experience and can give me some advice.
Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear Clodagh: While looking in Google for a layperson's explanation for Turners' Syndrome( for our other readers) I came across this series of posts from women who either had Turner's Mosaic or bore children with this. Usually I tend to respond with science quotes and research studies. Yet in your case, this seems to be more what you are asking.

Our best wishes to you, and your support people, in making the right decision for you.

With Respect,
