Little girl!!! I had an appt yesterday and he did a quick u/s. I asked him to check and he got a pretty clear shot between the legs with nothing in between!! I see maternal fetal Monday so I'm sure they'll look again but I'm excited!! I've had a very hard last month. I was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and cardiomyopathy and told I should probably terminate the pregnancy as the maternal fatality rate is so high but I've gotten second, third, etc opinions and feel comfortable (yet nervous) to continue the pregnancy.
Congrats on your (probably) little girl! I'm sorry that you are having to go through scary stuff with your heart. Is this something you've had to deal with pre-pregnancy, or did it start since you got pg? Were you having symptoms? I hope your pregnancy continues to be healthy with no complications!

Thank you guys!
Kim, I've had some issues since I was diagnosed with Still's Disease in 2000. Mild pulmonary hypertension was found shortly after my son was born in '09 but I wasn't having issues. I just recently started having some breathing issues. I've had PVC's forever as well as tachycardia. My echo in '09 did not show cardiomyopathy. My echo 2 weeks ago showed my ejection fraction went from 70 2 years ago to 40 also showed ph had worsened. We are taking things day by day.
So happy for you and your new little princess! It's good that you got more than that one opinion... I'm sorry you're going through all of this, but I think you're amazing and selfless for continuing the pregnancy... I bet she was beautiful to see!
