    I wanted to introduce myself as i will be joining this group just as soon as I am all set to ttc again. On Valentines day of this year at our anatomy scan at 18 weeks we found out our daughter had Turner syndrome and hyrops (fluid ) around her head, tummy feet and hands. Only half of her heart was working. It was the most devasting day. At a two week follow up appt we discovered she had passed. I delivered her vaginally on 3/5. Does anyone here have experience with turner syndrome? If you do, you probably know it is not genetic, it is a chromosomal problem that is very rare. In any case, I will be on high alert my next pregnancy. I had bleeding problems and about a month ago today started bleeding so heavily I was admitted to the er. Later, my dr found placenta sitting right next time my cervix, removed it and bleeding stopped. No bleeding since then. I have to wait 2 periods until I ttc again and the wait is so hard. I just do not know when to expect my period and I wish it woud come. I will be checking up on this board often as I really want to be an official ttcer soon, so i wanted to say hello.

    I posted a longer reply, but I think it didn't post for some reason...

    I went through a similar experience with our first child, a son we lost at 20 wks due to fetal hydrops and cycstic hydgroma. The geneticist said results for Turner's were negative and they did not have a definitive answer. I gave birth to him 2 days after we found out he had passed; always will be thankful to have held him but it was a sad & heartbreaking experience.

    We had a 2nd pregnancy the following year, a healthy baby girl; Juliet.

    I am so sorry for what you have been through and I hope your cycle returns to normal quickly so you can begin TTC again.

    (((Hugs)) and welcome!

    Thank you for the welcomes and support!
    TeacherBeck, Turner Syndrome only effects females but I have heard of males with hyrops and cystic hygroma. I forgot to mention in my into she had a big hygroma on her head and tummy.

    Welcome to our group. I am so sorry for your loss. That sounds like a terrible thing to go through. I have had 3 miscarriages and they were all awful experiences but I guess I can say that I am thankful that they happened earlier on (7 wks, 6wks, 11 wks). I hope you get to ttc again soon...the waiting is the worst part. Good luck to you.
