Thanks. Yep it has definitely been full on! I am hoping we can make it to full term and the fluid doesn't increase again.

Sorry to hear about the MRI results, what a journey this has been for you.  Hoping your bubs can cook for as long as possible!

Got the MRI results back. Bub definitely has partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. He also has fluid on his brain again, which is only mild, but they want to keep a close eye on it. Because if it gets severe they may need to deliver early.

Thanks guys! His growth is going really well :) He's actually jumped up to 58th percentile in growth!!! :O The dr asked me if I was sure I didn't have gd because it was such a big jump. But I didn't have gd according to my gtt so I am guessing he is just growing well? He still has short little legs tho which is cute, haha.

We are 29 weeks today :D Had another ultrasound yesterday as well and he is looking really healthy. The dr was so positive and said based on the scans he doubts he has t13 or 18. He did say scans aren't 100% diagnostic, but with a baby with one of those trisomies he would expect to see severe malformations. Which he isn't seeing.

They do still think bub has partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. And possibly Ds. But honestly if that is all it is it's fine. I just want to have a happy bubba to take home, even if he does have some challenges!

Oh, cl was also really good! Still waiting on the follow up MRI report for his brain in  more detail, but either way the prognosis is looking much better than they were originally saying.

So great to hear about your cervical length!! Such good news to hear that it’s gained some length at this stage. Wishing you more good news as you progress in this pregnancy!

Pleased to hear your cervical length has improved! I've noticed I always feel best when baby is breech. Head down is too much pressure, and traverse seems to trigger contractions for me.

How was his growth on your scan?

Had another ultrasound today. Bub is now breech, and my cl is a little longer. Yay!! I think maybe him not being head down is taking some of the pressure off?  So relieved!

27 weeks today!! Haven't had any contractions or bleeding for a few days!    :D I am sooo stoked to have made it this far!

Trying to think positive about bubs health. We won't know more till our next MRI and neurologist appointment. But hopefully all works out fine.

Hope everyone else is going good and still cooking? :)

:O That would have been scary! I'm so glad your son doesn't have it.

Thanks. Next MRI and ultrasound isn't for 2 weeks. Really hoping it's better news!

So hard to wait for those answers. With my son we had a false positive on his newborn screening for SCID right before his first surgery, and waiting the two weeks it took for the results from the repeat testing drove us crazy with anxiety, so I can only imagine what you are going through with this. Hope things look better for your son on the next MRI.
