Hello, LJD3Tdance posted in the Jan DDC about this group so I thought Id check it out and introduce myself.
Im Rheanna, I am 24 and am expecting my 1st. Its a boy, and his name will be Carson! I am 36 weeks and will be induced at 39 weeks do to a heart condition that Carson has. SO is Nick, he is one amazing man, who is my biggest support. Anyway, I look forward to getting to now all of you.
3 more weeks, I cant wait! Im so ready to not be pregnant anymore.
Carson has an aorta artresia. In simple terms it means that the aorta is way too small, and the blood is not able to leave his heart and go to the rest of his body like it should, and he also has a large VSD, which is a big hole between the two lower chambers. The VSD doesnt affect him while he is in the womb because I am oxygenating his blood for him, but it will once he is born and has to oxygenate his own blood. So, he will need surgery within his first week.
I started a blog that explains everything more in depth if you'd like to read it, its carsonnicholas
Wow, that's scary. It'd be hard to watch my little one get surgery, none of my kids have had surgery so far in their life. But I know about being ready to not be pregnant anymore, so 3 weeks isn't too long!
