    [quote:6808d87790=\"Desiree609\"]I am 21 weeks pregnant with my second boy. During my 20 week routine scan the doctor said it 'appears' there is fluid around the heart and it 'appears' there is fluid in the tissues of his abs. The only outcome of this would be hydrops. I am going to be sent to a larger hospital to have a second ultrasound and I just hope what she is seeing is not really there. I've never been so scared in my life.[/quote:6808d87790]

    Hi, my baby was diagnosed at 20 weeks with hydrops fetalis. Me and my partner have been to see 2 different specialist doctors and both agree that everything with my son is normal apart from a severe amount of fluid in the baby's stomach and chest. On Friday we were spoken to about our options to end this pregnancy as they can't find a cause for these problems. That is definitely the last thing I want to do its so hard and upsetting to be told by all these doctors that my son may die while I'm still carrying him. No doctors have suggested a way to resolve this, my partner asked about draining the fluid from him so his lungs can grow properly but they have said this isn't possible right now, I'm just wondering if anyone else is going through the same thing as I am. I'm taking everyday as it comes but it hurts me so bad knowing my son might no be ok. We have been give less that a 20% he will survive.

    Hi, I'm 20 weeks and my baby was diagnostic with hydrops. My Dr. will scall again next week and they suggest for the termination of the pregnancy since the out coming for hydrops is not promising. I saw at your post that you had propavirus and when you were 30 or 32 weeks your baby was growing fine and the doctor said that some of the fluid had gone. How is your baby doing? Thanks Ursula

    My son was born with hydrop fetalis we went the full term never knew nothing til 10 before my girlfriends due date they called us in did a sonogram and said the baby was small and they had to send us to a doctor who deliver small babies.when we got to the other hospital the informed us about hydrops and we had to choose in 15 do they try to save our child or just take him out and watch him die😞we decided to fight inwhich lil timmie died the next day. We did an autopsy and they save he was well except for the hydrops that was never treated and they said it take months for the fluids to get around all your organs but it was an unfortunate accident. So if a child have hydrops fetalis it takes a while for the fluids to get in they body. Whos at fault? My lawyer will find out and my son can rest in peace and hopefully his mom's can fully recovered.p.s she been throwing up getting sick ever since that.
