Anyone with info about fetal hydrops late in pregnancy?

I am 37 weeks pregnant and went in today for an amnio (which we couldn't do). The radiologist said that it looked like there was some fluid under the skin. So I went to my dr.'s office to have a 2nd opinion. She said she couldn't say for certain but it's possible. They're sending me to a specialist to find out for sure. A week ago there were no signs of fluid. All organs look good and growth is fine--a little big though. All of the research I've found on hydrops talks about it earlier in pregnancy and seem so dooming. The dr. said if it is hydrops we've caught it early. Has anyone had it this late in pregnancy? If so, what happened? How was the baby? Please help! I'm so worried about my little girl.

If you went for the second opionion and they said things are normal...sometimes if your baby moves when they are taking pictures it can look a little like there is fluid under ur babies skin..you should be fine...you're almost done..you have nothing to worry about...just relax and don't stress...stress this late is not healthy for your baby..  (+ info)

Hydrops in my son Isaiah during utero. What are his chances?(part 2 of a question I asked weeks ago)?

Hello again I once asked "how many cases of fetas Hydrops survive...". Thanks to those who reply and or gave good info. Isaiah's amnio. tests results came back all normal: he has all of his chromosomes needed no more no less. I too have had various blood tests done with again the results being normal.Yet today at our 3rd sonogram he still has the Hydrops; fluid around his little body under the skin. His growth is right on target, allowing us to know his weight is one lb. four oz.s(that weight is estimated by his messurements, which don't include the fluid around his body).A prenatal medicine Doctor whom I've been seeing may request I go to Boston to see specialists. I am still praying everyday everynight for the cause of the Hydrops to just resolve,go away or at the most be treatable.I need my son Isaiah as much as he needs me. My life has been revolved around him even after finding out what was going on,I still believe we have a fair chance, he reasures me by his movements from within

Without knowing more details, I'd suggest:

1. Consultation with a perinatologist in a urban hospital (Boston or Providence).

2. Consultation with a Genetic Counselor.

3. Ask if they did TORCH titres or CMV PCR on the amniotic fluid. These screen for infections.

4. If you are Asian/Mediterranean/African/Middle Eastern, ask about thalassemia (particularly alpha-thalassemia).

Fetal hydrops of unknown origin in the context of a normal karyotype still holds a high risk of adverse outcome unfortunately. This could mean preterm delivery, low birthweight, fetal death, preeclampsia and hypertension in Mom, edema in Mom, etc. Many cases turn out to be just fine too!

Ask questions until you understand...that's what the doctors are there for.  (+ info)
