I just got off the phone with a friend from my bible study class. She and I got pregnant right around the same time. Her baby is due two weeks after our baby. She received some devastating news today and is in desperate need of prayers.
Her Quad-screen came back abnormal and she was scheduled for an ultrasound today. She went in hoping everything would show up normal and she would be able to find out if the little thing was a boy or a girl. Unfortunately, they were told that the baby has Potter's Syndrome. I am not educated on what Potter's Syndrome exactly is, but I do know that the Baby has no kidneys and her amniotic fluid has run out. They were not able to determine the sex of the baby because the lack of amniotic fluid prevented the baby from being able to move.
I can not imagine what she must be feeling right now. She said to me, "I thought I'd find out whether we were having a boy or a girl and instead I am making funeral arrangements". I sat on the other end of the phone not knowing what to say....what can I say...I am sorry...but I know that is not what she wants to hear. Please pray for her and her family. She goes back on Monday for another ultrasound...I will be praying for a miracle on Monday and for God's comfort in this most hard time.
