Hi all, I had a CVS done and they want me to do an amnio now because the placenta showed Turner's Syndrome. Just wondering if anyone has had that diagnosis as well and what ever happened. We are doing the amnio this Thursday.

Lots of prayers for you. I have two healthy children and one miscarriage and I lost my fourth pregnancy to Turners Syndrome and currently 9 .5 weeks pregnant. I found out through maternal screening at 16 weeks that something was wrong with our baby. At 18 weeks I had an ultrasound that showed cystic hygroma and fetal hydrops, heart failure and numerous other problems with our sweet baby girl. They gave our daughter 0% chance of survival to term. I chose to be induced at 18 weeks 5 days and gave birth to our sweet baby girl. I named her Treya and her memory is a huge part of our family. My story is not a happy ending. I have done a lot of research since having Treya and thier are some girls that can survive and live good lives with Turners. Our daughter could not survive because of the size of her cystic hygroma and the damage to her organs. How far along are you? I sure wishing for the best for you and your sweet baby. I know how scary this must be for you. I had an amnio to confirm the missing X chromosome.

Hi Tara, Ive read your posts on the M/C board but didn't want to intrude on that thread so I figured I'd start one specifically. I thought about asking you but because, so far, our stories are a bit different. I am so sorry for your loss it breaks my heart. I am just about 15 w and the cvs showed it in the placenta. However, it is showing the mosaic version so she has a very good success rate. However, they want to confirm with the amnio to see if she actaully has it. The bad news is that even if she doesn't have it, from what I understand, I have a higher m/c rate because of the malformed placenta. The lab work states, with the CVS, a "Confined Placenta Mosaicism" , which according to that very website, it can go either way. I was hoping to get some stories that were similar but this is the 2nd thread I've started and you are the first response so it is apparently not very common. I imagine you will go for amnio again... I'm not sure I recommend CVS for this disease. I wish you so much luck with this pregnancy and even tho we both know the odds of this happening to you again is extremely low, i know the anquish you must be feeling and my prayers will be with you.

deltabwa, Mosaic turners is not as severe as non mosaic, so you have a better chance then I did. I found support on www.babycenter.com. I met lots of women that were either having Turners babies or lost one. It is very rare and non hereditary, so chances of ever happening again are less then 1%. I will only do the amnio if theres markers pointing to another chromosome problem.i wish you luck on your Amnio and lots of prayers for your little one.

Go to the bullitin boards and if you look under chromosome disorders there are a few about Turners Syndrome. That was at www.babycenter.com

Thanks. I go to that site alot for other things. I thought I had checked but i didnt check the boards so i will do that. Thanks. and I do know that mine is not as bad that was part of the reason I didn't approach you with questions before. But I appreciate your help.
