Turners Syndrome
My sister is 17 weeks pregnant. I went with her yesterday to see a maternal-fetal specialist And it was determined that the baby has Turners Syndrome. I can`t believe this, I have never even heard of this before. We are all in such a confused And unbelievable state right now.
According to the doctor the baby isn`t going to survive. It`s heart is under developled, has only 3 chambers, when there should be four, the stomach as fluid, and there are cysts on the babies neck. I can`t believe this is happening. Her only choice is to teminate her pregnancy. Per the doctor, she can`t carry the baby up to the nineth month since the heart is so weak And would be delivered still born. This is all just so unfair.
