It's officially a....PICS ADDED!!

Boy!! The doctor was wrong!!!! Maternal fetal did the u/s today and checked over and over again!! I was shocked!!

We didn't find out much else. They went over the risks with me of continuing the pregnancy which I'm definitely doing. The maternal fatality rate 20-30%, I feel that still gives me a 70-80% chance that everything will be fine, especially since we are aware of and closely watching the issues. They also pulled me from school which I'm upset about since it's already midterm and I'm getting all A's. I'm sure I'm leaving a lot out...so much to remember!

No denying it's a boy!

Congrats on a BOY! I loved having a little boy.

Sorry you have to quit school - especially with grades that good. I hope you guys can keep you closely monitored and you have a safe, healthy pregnancy.

hurray for little boys!!!!!!

I think its a very good idea to stop school for now. You really need to take it easy. I saw on your other thread that you have an EF of 40%. Do they think that is a temporary change from the pregnancy? I know an EF can bounce around alot, but I surely hope that its just a temporary change. Don't over do it missy!!!! Take care of yourself and that sweet little boy you have growing.

Congratulations on the boy!

It's a bummer about having to leave school, but you know it's for the best and you'll be able to catch right back up again when you're able. Smile

Keep healthy!

Congrats! Glad to hear that everything's looking good and that you're watching out for both of you! Biggrin

What kind of school/degree are you working on right now? Sorry to hear about having to stop at such an inconvenient point in the semester, but I'm happy you're able to do so. Biggrin

Congrats on the boy! Its too bad that you had to quit school but at least you know they are doing everything possible to keep you and the baby safe. At least thats what I would remind myself.

Congrats!!!! Praying you & baby boy continue to be healthy!

I'm so jealous of all of you that have found out the sex already! I think I am the first one due (Nov. 29th) yet my Dr. won't even let me take a peak until 20 weeks.

Yes, EF of 40%, it was 70 at my last echo. They aren't sure if the drop is from the pregnancy or not. The biggest concern is the combo of pulmonary hypertension and cardiomyopathy. Add in that I've had pre-e on both pregnancies and the risks go up:(. They said we should know more after 20 weeks as to how my body will tolerate the pregnancy. They also said to plan for an early delivery. I see my ob, cardiologist, maternal fetal, and starting next week a cardio specialist up in Tampa, so between these 4 doctors we should be able to manage everything.

He's actually much more calm than I am. He's always been mr. Positive. He doesn't think anything could possibly happen to me, which is probably a good thing!
