I just came back to check for an update, hopefully it was great news... Thinking of you.. xx
I'm also thinking of you OP. Xox
Yes, you're on my mind too. I hope all is well xx
Thank you so much for everyone's support, I can let you know that the head of ultrasound provided some answers but we are in for a long ride. There is no structural block, no holes in the heart, it appears to be a fetal arrhythmia issue that now requires a pediatric cardiologist to get involved. The doctor went on to say that whilst the FHR is low, it doesn't appear to be causing distress to bubs so it is a case of close monitoring, further investigations and fingers crossed we can get bubs as close to term as possible. Something with regards to the top two chambers are not communicating with the bottom two chambers properly which at worse when bubs is born May need a pacemaker for a little bit.
am a little more at ease but it's not going to be a smooth sailing pregnancy.
I've been reading along.... And have just read your update. I was followed with a pediatric cardiologist from my 20 week scan for different reasons. So I have sort of been through that stress. Sending you hugs. If you need to talk feel free to pm me.
That is good news. Regardless of the outcome, surround yourself with a good support team. If bubs does need a pacemaker it can be quite scary to see your precious little baby have an operation. Good luck for the remainder of your pregnancy
Perhaps talk to your care provider about whether it would be beneficial to have steroid injections at some point when you're over 24 weeks. If there is any concern about bubs coming early, you want bub to be in the best condition possible.
This is really great news, not great about bubs heart but that not all hope is lost! Glad they've caught the issue now and can be proactive about the situation. I hope you can relax a little bit now xxx
