So, remember the eif I told you ladies about? The extra flap of tissue in his heart... Well, I had my appt and sono last Friday to see if it had disappeared on its own. It hasn't. Which rules out mineral deposits. Where we stand now is:
Best case scenario, it's an isolated event and at worse will turn into a heart murmur after birth. At best, it is just nothing whatsoever.
Worse case scenario, it's associated with a chromosomal abnormality, more specifically down's syndrome.
I have an appt on Monday the 13th with a perinatal heart specialist where they will do 3D and 4D ultrasounds to measure just how big the flap is. They will also look at brain, stomach, and face for any chromosomal abnormality markers. They will also do a fetal ekg through my stomach (how cool is that) to determine if it's interferring with regular pumping and if it's making any extra noises and whatever else.
Needless to say, we are pretty freaked right now but I'm very glad they are moving quick on the situation! Please, keep us in your prayers.
Aside from all this, I did my GD test...haven't received results yet. How long does that take? Also, baby is measuring pretty much on target. At my previous sono he was measuring 1-2 weeks ahead but is now measuring no more than a few days ahead. Whew!! LOL! I was nervous about pushing out that big ol thing. Anyways, his head is 10.5 inches around and his tummy is just little smaller. I always think this is neat to know because my OB will pull out her measuring tape and show me so it's neat to actually SEE it.
Anyways, I will update again when we find something out from the specialist! Wish us luck! And again, when should I find out the GD results?
