Chromosome problem in fluid around baby. Scheduled aminocentesis. Will be baby be fine?

My Ob/Gyn did an ultrasound and saw somethings that concerned him so he sent me to have a level 2 ultrasound done. It the ultra sound she told me there was water around the baby s kidneys and neck area which could mean a chromosome problem. She also told me his heart looks to have some problem because one ventricle is pumping all the blood. She also said the baby has a small chin. She asked to do a amniocentesis . I said yes because I am concerned. Is my baby going to be ok or will we lose him?

I am sorry, but I do not know your gestational period. I suppose you are in your first trimester now.

The baby seems to be having problems. If it is early pregnancy, it is better to go for Medical Termination of Pregnancy.

I am sorry but I think this is a wise decision. Also, please confirm the exact fetal pathology before you decide on this. A valid ultrasound report signed by the radiologist is necessary.

All the best.
