Allison was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at 20wks gestation. She was born at 39wks on May 13, 2015. She's compatible with life and love! This is her story.
Allison Clay Carpenter is due May 20, 2015. At 16wks, we had labs done that were positive for Trisomy 18. We later agreed to amniocentesis, which confirmed the diagnosis of Full Trisomy 18. Allison has a few of the markers on ultrasound: Small ASD, Small VSD, 2 vessel umbilical cord, Choroid Plexus Cysts (which has since resolved), and Hypertelorism. She's a strong little fighter.
We're currently 35wks, and she's trucking along. We are blessed with a fabulous medical team, that is keeping a watchful eye on us. We're praying for a miracle, and especially for the chance to meet our baby girl. We're so thankful for our time with her so far.
