Well let's start this story off with the most horrendous nightmare. I dreamed last night that I woke up and went to my ultrasound and found out that my baby had died in

Oh also I forgot to add that the placenta previa is completely gone, although the placenta has moved to an anterior position which explains the fact that I have felt less movement the last couple weeks. It might also make it harder to keep track of Nicholas as I am supposed to BUT I would way rather have an anterior placenta than a previa like before. (sigh)

Wow, Mandie,

I am so sorry that you are going through all of that.

I'm on the November 2012 EC and was just lurking here remembering the excitement from the 20w u/s and looking forward to it. I wanted to post because I remember reading a story last year about a baby that had pulmonary atresia and other defects. She had a positive outcome, so I searched for the story. It is at https://waystogive.texaschildrens.org/page.aspx?pid=1556 . I don't know what part of the country you are in, but maybe you can find a hospital that has experience with this problem.

I am sorry you are going through this and I hope that you are able to get a positive outcome and a healthy baby.

Thanks so much, ladies! I think the most important thing is for me to stay positive. If I am stressed out than that cannot help Nicholas develop properly... it is better for me to stay relaxed and calm despite all the bad things that I am hearing. I want to give him the best chance for survival, and taking care of myself is a good place to start. Tiffa2005, I really appreciate the info. I am definitely going to check it out. :-)

Thank you so much! I do believe there is always an opportunity for things to change, no matter what these doctors say. :-)
