    Well, we recieved good and bad news today. My membranes have resealed and baby boy has plenty of fluid!! On the other hand, they discovered he has tetrology of fallot- a heart defect We will be seeing a pediatric cardiologist soon. As for the bedrest, I may be able to resume regular activities although I am hesitant because now more than ever I need to let this baby bake to get as strong as possible before delivery.....

    I'm so sorry that you recieved such bad news. What does this mean for the little one? Keep those babies baking and get them big and strong. T&P are with you.

    I have been doing alot of research and talking with people I know in the medical field and while having a congenital heart problem is significant..the surgery is about 100% successful. It's awful to think about him having open heart surgery but everything says that these babies typically go on to lead a normal life. Both babies are currently in the 55% and are otherwise looking great! My dr. says he will go on to grow as normal and depending on the extent of the problem they will either do surgery after birth or within the first 6 months. We are meeting Wednesday with the cardiologist so we will know a bot more then! Thanks for checking in on us

    Aww man, thats rough - positive on one hand you will be cleared and the it looks like the surgery is a sure fix with no long term effects but just to deal with it and the surgery, I will keep you in my prayers!! After all is said and done, it will all be worth it and your son will be healthy and thats all that matters!! Stay positive!

    I'm sorry for all the stressors and I hope you can keep them in much longer to grow that boy big and strong for his heart surgery.

    I just wanted to offer you some support. My son Eli was born with Shone's Syndrome (left sided heart defects). If you ever need a ear, shoulder, etc. please feel free to PM or you can find me over on the Birth Defects and Special Needs board.

    I am glad you heard some good news. I am sorry to hear about the heart defect. I will continue to hope that your babies keep baking for as long as possible. Take it as easy as you can.

    Wow - that is great news about the membrane and fluid!!

    I am sorry to hear about the heart defect. Looking at the bright side, it is fixable and he will lead a happy, healthy life. That is the most important part.

    I will continue to think about you and your family!

    Keep them little ones baking away!
