Triploidy

This weekend we learned that our little baby didn’t progress past week 8 because he (yes, he) had a disorder called Triploidy.

Triploidy occurs when a baby has 3 copies of each chromosone, instead of two, and is a lethal condition.

Thankfully this only occurs in 1 to 2% of pregancies and there is no increased risk of it occuring in future pregnancies.

Helpful to know.

Maybe it makes it a little easier in some ways.

Still sad.
