Post subject: Question on my half sisters behalf: Severe Turners Syndrome?
My half sister went to her gender predicting appointment and they told her that her baby has a severe case of cystic hygroma non immune hydrops which i googled and it says its also known as turners syndrome... and they could not find the babies bladder her doctor said something like a 90 something percent chance the baby wont make it full term...
anyone been through this before? Can you help shed some more light on all of this for us?

Hi, was this not picked up at the 12 week scan? We had this with our 1st pregnancy, severe cystic hygroma with pretty much 0 percent chance going full term. Ours was due to Down's syndrome we found out with a cvs. We chose to have a termination but really we didn't have much of a choice. Had a termination at 16 weeks so i'm afraid in my personal experience I cannot offer much hope except to say that since then in have gone on to have 2 successful pregnancies with 2 beautiful and healthy girls. I hope your sister has lots of support around her to be able to face this and wish her all the best x
