Hi, I am Gwyn. I have 3 children Christian (12), Gabriella (almost 3) and Alina (14 months). I am also preggers with our last child. I am due April 12th. We recently found out that the baby I am carrying has Supra Valvar Aortic Stenosis. I will be delivering at a hospital that is 4 hours from home, making it really hard for DH to be there when it happens. I will be moving into the hospital at 36 weeks, so that they can pretty much have me there and not in the middle of nowhere. This is all still very knew to us, and we are just now learnign what it is all about.... so if anyone has experience with SVAS please share your stories!

Welcome! I'm due with my second about a month and a half after you!

My 4 year old son Jude was born with a VSD and with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. I'm having a fetal echo done in February, at 25 weeks, to check for any heart abnormalities with the new baby.

Welcome! I don't know a thing about it, although I know other mommies on here will. My son has a VSD (ventricular septal defect). My boy (Jack) is 5 months old. Congratulations on your pregnancy. This board has been great for info and also for sharing fears, concerns and celebrations too.
