    Hydrops (fluid on the baby)

    Hi, I have just had a scan that shows my baby probably has hydrops. Has anyone heard of this or know anything about it? Ive googled it and it all sounds hopeless.
    I lost my first baby last year, I cant go through this again...

    Hydrops

    My son passed away due to non-immune hydrops on June 19, 1995. He was born at 30 weeks. He only lived a few hours before he passed away. There are two theories I have as to what may have caused his hydrops. The one theory I have and am most certain on is due to being exposed to the parvo-19 virus otherwise known as Hand Foot Mouth Disease. I believe in my heart that this is what caused my son's hydrops. I did not know anything about this disease and the harm that it can cause a fetus.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who has been affected by Hydrops.

    Thanks Parkers Mommy. At the moment things are looking more positive as the fluid looks confined to the neck and appears to be resolving. Still having lots of tests/scans etc. Hopefully will know more from the big 19wk scan.
    I am soo sorry for your loss. Take care
