Thanks for the input and encouragement. A few questions. (1) If I dont do an amnio to rule out DS or genetic abnormality, how do I know if I should bank the cord blood? As it does not good in prescence of genetic defects.... ...

Kalsey - I also think you're doctor is giving you good advice. When I met with the neurosugeons at 37 weeks, he said that by the time parents are referred to him, we all are so freaked out because most OBs have scared the parents to death a ...

Turtlemom, that is wonderful to hear! What a blessing you both are! ...

Hi mamamarth, I'm glad your little one is doing well! Parker started Kindergarten in August and is on track with her peers. She does have OT for fine motor to help with handwriting. But, her vocabulary is advanced and she is a complete joy! ...


mamamarth - 48.4 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
By the way, Turtlemom, how is Parker doing? I think about you both quite often as your story remains one of our greatest inspirations! Hope you and your family are well! ...

Kalsey, sending tons of love your way! Your strength is fierce and your babies are so lucky to have you as their mom and advocate! I agree with Turtlemom, I think your doctor is taking the right approach. Waiting on such a potentially scar ...

Lab77, you are still very small. The margin of error is 1.5mm. If there was a blockage in the 3rd vent, you would see bilateral dilation. Unilateral dilation is more uncommon. If it continues to increase (which I doubt), I'd get a MRI aroun ...

And yes to cord blood! Call CBR right away!! Tell them Parker Hendrix sent you. With a VM dx, you might qualify for free banking under the newborn possibilities program. ...

Hi kalsey, bravo to your doctor for not freaking out! I do think you should be seeing a Perinalologist if your doctor isn't one, but as far as the insight, they were spot on! An amino is riskier further along. That's something you should do ...

Also, I find it a bit odd that she is so sure that if everything stays the same, we do not need to talk shunt. Is that assuming too much? And why did she not say anything about developemental issues as a possibility? She also said that s ...


kalsey - 98.2 hours ago - Posted in Ventriculomegaly
I have been silently reading most of the posts over the last few days. I am 30 weeks pregnant. I just found out from a level 2 sonogram that my baby has bilateral VM, with ventricles measuring 14(right?) and 15 or 16 (left - cant remember ...

I know not many people post here anymore but this forum used to be so busy 😞. Anyway, I'm just passing the time anxiously waiting a cycle to ttc again. I had an early miscarriage last week (5 1/2 weeks along), and the Dr said to wait 2 c ...
