First of all I want to thank everyone who has been over to the HR board following my journey and also on this board so much for all of your kind words and support.... To fill the rest of you in, due to a troubling Anatoly scan, the HR doctor that was I was referred to has recommended an amino this morning. I am absolutely SICK about this. Initially they said that if the pediatric cardio specialist rilednohh AVSD than that is the only reason why I should have an amino. They did rule that out (thank god), however in the ultrasound my baby has a "small left heart" and they want to see if there is a chromosomal abnormality that perhaps wasn't picked up on the blood tests that needs to be addressed. The NOT KNOWING is absolutely nerve racking and for the safety of my baby I want to know now if there is anything else wrong. The small left heart is something that can potentially correct itself, however it is likely that my little boy will at least need one heart surgery following his birth.
Thankfully I live in Toronto 10 minutes away from Sick Kids Hospital and in have already been referred there just to be SAFE. People come from all over the world with their kids to get to his hospital.
I am well aware that there is risk in amnio. I have had a couple of friends have seemingly "perfect pregnancies" and then something turn out to be very wrong in the pregnancy after 25 weeks and also having problems that they were unaware of after baby was born. I want to be prepared.
So please keep my baby in your prayers over the next few days... I sure hope that he can rest while I am waiting for these results because I know that I won't!
