GynaeDoc, your answer to this question lacks any form of compassion for what Popie must be going through. It sounds like you typed out the quickest one liner you could think of for the sake of being able to tick one more question off the list. " No, this condition does not give you a baby that will survive."  Really sensitive, very nice!

The best place to get advice on this would be from your OB/Gynae. But babies with triploidy are usually lost to early miscarriage. Those that survive gestation are usually born with multiple birth defects and rarely survive beyond 5 months old. So sorry to be giving such a grim outlook. It is a very rare genetic condition.

My thoughts are with you as this must be very difficult.
