It's been a while since I have been on its been a crazy month or so, we just moved and I started a new job at 33 weeks pregnant believe it or not! Lol
But anyways, just an update at my last appt two weeks ago the doctor said I was measuring 3 weeks ahead so she ordered an u/s which is what I did this morning and afterwards I saw the doctor... What she said was the baby is measuring on time now (35 weeks) and everything looks good except that it looks like the right side of the babies heart looks bigger than the left side so she is sending me to get a fetal echocardiogram or in other words an ultrasound of the heart with a specialist doctor. The soonest they could get us in is June 11th which means two weeks of waiting! How am I not to go insane with worry?!
Is anybody else in a similar situation? Or have any information on what it could mean?
I've had to have fetal echos with all of my kids. Thry have had varying degrees of heart problems, most self corrected. The echo will tell more specifically what, if anything, is going on. They can then know if they need to watch for anything after birth. Hang in there. I hope the next couple weeks fly by.
To read updates about our baby born with major birth defects, like our Facebook page
I don't have any advice on the heart issue, I just wanted to say that I hope the echo gives some insight into whats going on. I do know that a lot of heart issues self-correct so I will keep you in my thoughts that that is what happens for your baby too. Ugh, I cannot imagine how hard it must be to wait for two weeks. So sorry.
