Update on Baby Girl's Heart

We had our fetal echocardiogram today to get a better picture of Baby Girl's heart.  She sat still for most of the scan but for the last part put her dancing shoes on and made it a little more difficult for the sonographer.  Haha!

After the scan, the doctor informed us that our daughter has what appears to be an inlet VSD?  Basically she has a pretty large hole in her heart which will require correction in the form of open heart surgery when she is a few months old.  Thankfully this likely won't have too much of an impact on her delivery and she should still be able to be born naturally rather than by c-section.  It's also good news that she will have a few months to put some meat on her bones before the surgery!

We will keep you updated as we get more news!!  Keep us in your prayers!!
