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.

Clodagh replied to reddawn75's response:
Dear reddawn75,
Apologies for the delayed response. Your words have helped us considerably. We have now seen a GC, have had another scan and echo and will go full term with our baby girl. She's due May 8th, and we've begun to think of a name for her. Her vital signs are remain good. Our next scan is Jan 23. Meanwhile, we've been educating ourselves on the early lives of girls with mosaic turners. We're praying that our degree of mosaicism will remain 12% or lower at the postnatal blood test. Please God the year 2013 will be a fortunate one for our baby and us.
Thanks again for your thoughts.
Best wishes for a happy new year.
