So today, Friday 6/24/16 at 34 weeks 5 days, was our last fetal echocardiogram with our pediatric cardiologist before our Mila Rose makes her grand entrance into this world. We've had a total of 4.
Today confirmed what we already knew (to find the latest technical mambo-jumbo... go the Quick Facts page):
- DORV Taussig-Bing
- VSD - is large, which is a good thing, and the exact placement of it has yet to be determined
- Pulmonary Stenosis - has remained constant
- We won't know more or exacts until she's born and the echocardiogram is performed directly on her and, ultimately, until they get in there
- It's highly likely she has a 2nd VSD in her upper chambers. It's likely small, not a big concern and will be fixed during surgery.
- While they of course want me to go full term, we are now in the safety zone. Not to say going early still wouldn't complicate things but every hour, day, week from here on out is a bonus. (So excuse me while I put my feet up and try to keep stress at a minimum :)
