The Presence Of Fluid Around The Neck And Heart Of A 6 Month Old Fetus?
Good night. I just got anther my wife’s ultrasound. But the results were not good. There is fluid around his neck and heart. The doctor’s advice must be issued immediately. R nMy question is whether the baby is safe until the time comes.
Hello Bani, Thank you for the question.
Do you know the cause of this fluid buildup? Are you referring to polyhydramnios (excessive amniotic fluid) or other developmental disorders? One of the causes of excess fluid is polyhydramion. Polyhydramnios can occur due to congenital defects in babies, pregnant women suffering from diabetes, having twins who have twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, infection in pregnancy, congenital heart defects in babies, or different blood rhesus between mother and baby. Due to the limited information you convey, I apologize for not being able to provide further information about the condition of your wife's pregnancy. Excess fluid can interfere with fetal growth and development. Therefore, if the amount of fluid is large enough, the doctor will recommend taking this fluid. Usually the doctor will use an ultrasound-assisted needle (to direct it) to collect this fluid. Regarding the health and safety of the baby, you should discuss it with an obstetrician who will perform this action. The doctor is the one who better understands the condition of the pregnancy and the baby in your wife's womb because the doctor is the one who examines it. Don't hesitate to ask your doctor about the risks of this procedure.
I hope this information is helpful.
