    So getting ready to head back to hospital for all my results. It's been 6 weeks since I gave birth to my little boy born sleeping. Going to find out all the results for the blood tests, tests on the placenta and post mortum and hopefully we can find out some answers! Very nervous. Think I woke up every hour during the night.

    Will update you all soon x

    Thank you all for your comments!

    So all blood tests came back normal. However on the post mortum, they found fetal hydrops, flat midface, single crease on the palms and very complex and unsual heart complications. So unusual that the person conducting the post mortum had not seen this before.

    They done all the chromosomes test and all came back fine, baby didn't have downs.

    On the external examination facial development was symmetrical but there was a flat mid face and the nose was long and rather flat. Eyes were upward slanting. Mouth, tongue, palate and ears were normal. The heart revealed multiple abnormalities. All of this has lead to them testing for DiGeorge however the test failed as the cells would not grow. So will not know if baby possibly had DiGeorge. My other half and I will be going another hospital that has specialist in this area to do testing on us to see if we carry this DiGeorge gene.

    Basically, our darling little boy died of issues surrounding his heart. We have been told that 1 in 50 chance that could happen again, and if one of us carry this DiGeorge gene, risk increases. Will have extra monitoring in next pregnancy and hopefully next pregnancy we will get by the 20 week scan with no issues.

    My partner is trying to see it is a 'blessing in disguise' as baby had multiple heart issues maybe they would have a difficult life. But still, I would love to have my son here and growing.

    If anyone has any information on this DiGeorge if you could let me know as I have never heard of it until now.

    We can start trying again at any time we want, and just to do the usual take folic acid 3 months before falling pregnant and 3 months into pregnancy. We are getting married 27th September 2014 so we have decided to wait until then, and as soon as I say I do I plan to ttc straight away.

    xx

    You're so brave. Unfortunately I don't know anything about DiGeorge, although I have heard of it.
    Congrats on planning your wedding, I remember that as being such an exciting time.
    Big hugs xx

    Thank you all! Just hope we don't have the DiGeorge gene as means more likely next baby will has syndrome and have a very difficult life growing up and I know folk can be cruel to folk who look/act differently. And I would hate for my child to be unhappy in life x
