Most heart defect go unnoticed until after birth--from my reading, it seems as though only the really major defects are picked up before birth. There are several groups out there trying to get pulseox screening added to newborn screenings to catch more defects at birth. 1 out of every 100 babies has a heart defect and far too many are found when it's too late

Btw--Feb 7-14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness week! CHIN: CHD Awareness Week


I hope your DH's job hunt is successful soon
