A little update from me * sensitive*
Just a little update fro me ladies. It's a little sensitive so don't read on if you think it'll upset you.
I've been to see the consultant this morning and she had the post mortem results and our blood results.
The baby had downs syndrome and they're sure that's why the baby didn't survive. There were no other physical abnormalities present, they know it was downs from the tissue samples. They have said that our bloods were clear for hereditary disorders and that this was just a "one off". We are only a slightly higher risk of this happening again, of 1%. I guess it is the best news we could hope for from a very sad situation- we at least know why it happened and that it isn't something hereditary.
So, this all means that we can TTC again. She has said that if/when we get pregnant again that we can speak to her and she will arrange for scans at 8 and 11 weeks and then any screening as neccesary. It reassures me a bit that at least it might get picked up earlier if it was to happen again.
Thanks to you all over the last few months, I couldn't have got through it without you all.
