“We went in for a routine 20 week ultrasound and 45 minutes went by. At the very end she said, “The baby’s legs are short. I can’t find the baby’s legs. I’m going to refer you to the bigger hospital.” They told us they thought he had a form of dwarfism based on his femur length. His femurs are shortened and curved, which is a marker for other conditions. We had to keep going back for follow up ultrasounds. At around the 28th week it became progressively clear that it was more than just Dwarfism. He referred to it as brittle bone. He didn’t think it was that until the 28th week ultrasound. He said “I think based on what i’m seeing here, I think it’s Osteogenesis Imperfecta.” So we ended up getting an amniocentesis done. At 32 weeks we got the results back that it was Osteogenesis Imperfecta.”
