Re: (UPDATED with US Photos) Bulging fluid at base of head/down syndrome?

Thank you for all the wonderful thoughts and prayers. I am home right now but on my way back to the hospital in the next 45 min. for my induction.
I'll try and explain more when I am able to come home late Sunday or Monday.

But just so some of you know.. the baby has a major encephalocele where the actual brain grew outside of the skull. Most babies never make it this far and we were told many times how lucky we were to have found it when we did. Babies that aren't found until normal 19 week US's still don't make it and miscarry at 23 weeks max or are induced due to health risks of the mom and then the death of the baby is much harder on the baby.
We have been told there is 0 chance of survival and this is our only option outside of a quick but I think more invasive DNE.

Please just keep me in your prayers a small bit longer as I have a history of hemorraging and worry about what might happen with this type of induction so early on. We have decided that even though this baby wasn't planned, we still won't stop ourselves from having another and watching closely for any problems early on.
As we think this might have happened for a reason and maybe God has another chosen one for us. Which has given us some peace and made things a little easier to understand.

Faith is a wonderful thing!!!

and more to everyone for all the support and prayers.

Jennifer
