I had a fetal echo done today. It's essentially an in depth ultrasound where they really look and listen to the baby's heart. I knew something wasn't normal when it took 45min to do, then another 15min for the doctor to take a look. He started by saying her heart looks great, for now. He saw a narrowing of the pactent ductus, something about the umbilical cord and blood flow. It's kind of a blur. He said it can cause the right ventricle to enlarge and something about heart failure when she's born, assuming I make it to term.
As of right this moment, she is fine. It's just a waiting game now. I have to go back in 6wks to see if her heart is enlarging. I could really use some prayers that it will look normal. Thanks everyone.

Oh, Rebecca. I'm so sorry! There is still hope though, isn't there? I don't know much about what is happening with you, but it sounds like things could still be ok??

I'll be praying for you and your little one. I'm sorry you didn't get good answers today.
