I've been a member of JM for a while. I was most active when I was pregnant with my middle child (Aiden). I was a member of the December 2009 DDC. When Aiden was about 3 months old I found out I was expecting again. I had a very uneventful pregnancy (it was my 3 and was SO easy). Savannah was born in October and had no complications, weighing in at 9lbs even.
At her 1 month check up her pedi noticed a murmur and made an appointment for us to see a cardiologist. They run a ton of test and that's when we found out she has an ASD. The hole in heart is approximately 7-8 mm.
She hasn't been gaining much weight (at her last visit she was 14 lbs which was just over 1/2 lb from her visit 3 weeks earlier).
Currently Savannah takes Lasix once a day, to help her heart. She started taking the meds just about a month ago (at her last appointment). They did another u/s of her heart and although her hole was a little smaller (looked like about 6mm) the right side of her heart was enlarged.
I am having a really hard time dealing with her diagnoisis and I'm feeling a lot of guilt.
I am hoping that I'll be able to find people here that understand what I'm going through!
