So echo test this am @ 745. Yikes, I am so sleepy.
So the cariologist confirmed that our sweet Angel has all four heart chambers which are measuring on track . She has all heart valves/vessels with blood flowing and also measuring on track. Her heart rate is good and steady.
However, she does have a small gap in the upper right side. He assured me there's nothing to drive myself nuts over. He said all the major parts are there, on track and working. He said more than people realize, many people are born with small /moderate holes. He said there's a chance it can close before she's born, or it can close when she's born or if it doesn't, and its effecting her ane operation is needed, its an operation that is common, and one that he's never had complications with. He said some people even live with it forever.
He gave me a follow up appt on Oct 7th and will then follow up every three weeks to see the growth. He did confirm baby girls head is measuring at 22 weeks and she's about 11 in. Long. He said her heart doesn't look like a down syndrome heart, although some ds hearts do have vsd (the hole) he doesn't show any defects and I had pgd so he feels confident. Pgd doesn't pick up things like vsd but does detect chromosnal defects. He said I should go thru with the u/s to check the babys hands and feet. He said he doesnt see anything alarming but again she was sucking her thumb and they want to make sure all her little fingers and hand is ok.
So I'm thankful for the news today and the cardiologist made me feel a lot better by explaining things to me. I appreciate his knowledge. So I have an appt on Oct 2 for a f/u ultasound to check on the bean again. Checking if everything is okay (hopefully so) and then cardiologist Oct 7 and OB oct 9 so let the appts roll. Whatever I have to do to make sure LO is ok.
My brain is all over the place..
Can you ladies think of any questions I should ask my Cardiologist, OB, or the Ultrasound Tech?
What do you all think about the feedback from the Echo?
Do you think it would be foolish to begin the nursery? Or go thru with the baby shower?
Should I put a hault on buying things?
What would you do if you were in my shoes? Panic? Or just continue as I have been?
Thanks ladies!!!! Sorry for any errors, mobile bumping.
