Help desperately seeking advice on hydrops , I'm only 16weeks pregnant and ultrasound scan showed my baby has hydrops . Fluid under the babys skin , the heart has been pushed to the other side of the chest and there is fluid in babys right lung . Despite all this babys heart is still beating normally . We have been told there isn't much hope for our baby surviving the pregnancy but I just want more advice or people's personal experiences as the hospital didn't give us much advice . I can't help but thinking that the baby survived the heart being pushed over to the other side off the chest by the fluid and still beating away fine then there must be a chance . If anyone can help I would really appreciate it as this is my first baby so I am absaloutly terrified that my baby won't make it . I was given the option to terminate but personally I couldn't go through with it as I want to give my baby a chance , whatever the outcome may be I will always love my baby .Thanks agian xx
