turtlemom - 35.9 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
I only know IGM and IGG. Which one was negative and which one was positive? I had a false positive rubella when I was pregnant. I think that's somewhat common. http://www.cdc.gov/dpdx/toxoplasmosis/dx.html ...

TutleMom - so i just got a call from my doctors that my TORCH results were in. My CMV IGG was negative but the IGG was positve, Im wondering if it has a correlation between the ventricles although she assured me t was unlikely. Our genetic ...

My daughter had severe hydro. Her vents were unmeasurable at 27 weeks. We wound up having her at 32/6. We never had a fetal MRI. I'd scrap it and wait for one that will really tell you something. ...

Thank you Turtlemom ,Yes the Mri is a week before my repeat c section which was so hard to get sooner. The relief I have is that we are patients of a good university hospital and children's hospital with a great neuro department . It's har ...

Milismom, a MRI at 38 weeks is worthless. I would wait until your little one is born. A fetal MRI is not as definitive as one once you give birth. It's a total waste of $ and time. 15mm and 17mm at this late term are still very borderline m ...

Hello. I had a growth scan last week in currently 36 w. So far the only issue we had encounter at 20w was a borderline nuchal fold . We had an amnio done and everything came back OK. No spina bifida, chromosome abnormalities. Well at our ...

Hi. I am 20+ 3 today and 40 years old. This will be my second baby ( I have a nearly 4 year old girl). I had my anomaly scan on the 22nd May and I am beside myself. It was a private scan as my HSE anomaly scan is not until the 1st of july a ...

gandjplus1: Thank you for your feedback. Always helpful to hear other stories of similar cases than your own. gingermom: Great news, I am glad we can both relax a bit now. I keep checking the blog and I will update once my baby is born ...


gingermom - 127.5 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
I had my follow up scan 3 days ago, the ventricles size fluctuated from 12 mm to 12.5 mm. The doctor told me not to worry and that she doesnt consider it as progression. She said that the baby is generally big, all parts of her body is at t ...


gandjplus1 - 166.4 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
djonghclaudia, my daughter's VM remained similar through my entire pregnancy (19 weeks through 36). The measurements fluctuated around .3 or so, which they considered to be the same due to margin of error. She did not receive any further ...


turtlemom - 166.8 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Isolated mild VM will remain unchanged in 60% of cases, go down in 1/3 of cases and go up in only 8% of cases. http://www.obfocus.com/questions/qanda10.htm The margin of error is 1.5mm. I wouldn't worry about a change within 1.5mm. My da ...


dejonghclaudia@hotmail.com - 169.9 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
I had my follow up scan today and the right ventricle measured 12mm vs 11.8mm from 3 weeks ago. I was advised not to worry and from looking at how the measurement was taken, considering how low she is and that the Doctor has to take it from ...


StacieT - 180.2 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Any other moms have complete resolution of VM? Ours went down to a normal 7.9 by 32 weeks and they seem to not even want to check on him after birth. Are the odds of no other issues higher when VM resolves, or does it matter? ...


turtlemom - 180.5 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
No, those tests weren't common 7 years ago. I would have chosen them over the amnio had they been available then. I had an amnio at 18 weeks with Parker, but that was 2008. The Harmony & Maternti21 are good about the negative being a solid ...


lovingmummy1 - 199.8 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Katiediggy thank you for you're reply. After that post she started walking better! Not 100 percent there yet but more steps ! Turtlemom could you tell me if you had any screening tests or any genetic testing when you were having Parker? ...


turtlemom - 214.2 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
A late term amnio is not advisable. In fact, for VM I don't recommend amnio' sin general. There are more effective blood tests called Harmony or Materni21 that you can take. They do not rule out every chromosomal abnormality, but they do co ...


dejonghclaudia@hotmail.com - 221.3 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
gingermom: I wish you all the best for your scan tomorrow. Please update us on the results. Positive thinking x ...


gingermom - 221.4 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
dejonghclaudia: my follow up can is tommorrow and im really worried about the result. wish the best for both of us. ...


dejonghclaudia@hotmail.com - 222.2 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
gingermom: If you read my story from 13 days ago you will see our results/stories are very similar. All my scans have been 100% normal, low risk pregnancy and then at 32 weeks the Doctor picked up on 'mild isolated VM' measuring at 11.8mm - ...


gingermom - 226.1 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
thank you turtlemom for the reply. can the normal (negative) result for maternal screening tests earlier in pregnancy including nasal bone test, nuchal translucancy scan and mother blood test be good indication that the ventriculomegaly is ...


turtlemom - 235.3 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Hi gingermom, there is a 77% chance of normal neural development. That doesn't necessarily mean the vents will go back to normal, but that means they won't increase into hydrocephalus. Good luck to you and yours! http://www.obfocus.com/ques ...


gingermom - 269.7 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Hi. I recently had my 32 week 3D scan and my daughter was diagnosed with mild ventriculomegaly of 12 mm. my follow-up ultrasound is by the end of this week (34 week). my doctor suggests no amnio test is required at this stage, because its n ...


katieandiggy@tiscali.co.uk - 317.5 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Lovingmummy - if there are no other problems I wouldn't worry at this stage. I know that's easy to say. My VM baby walked at 11 months but he's 3.5years now and still can't talk and has poor receptive language. My friends daughter was a l ...


lovingmummy1 - 389.8 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Hi I just wanted advise from anyone with a similar situation. I have posted here before my daughter had mild vm and when she was born turned out fine. I never had an amino while pregnant or any screening tests. She is now two, she knows the ...


clauddj - 537.1 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
Hello. I had my 32 week doppler scan on Saturday and the Doctor reported back that my baby has 'Mild Isolated VM' measuring at 11.8mm on the right side. I dont have any other issues and have been told to return in 3 weeks for another scan. ...
