I just became a member here and really did not expect to even get to ttc until June or July but I just tested and sure enough I am pregnant. I am so shocked...grateful...but very nervous. I know having another turner syndrome pregnancy is unlikely but did I just lessen my chance of a healthy pregnancy by getting pregnant without two, or even one, healthy cycle in between??
I will try to not let my nerves get the best of me, but I know pregnancy after a loss is a whole new ball game and I'm scared.View Thread
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.View Thread
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.View Thread
