Fetal Echocardiogram

Fetal Echocardiogram
Current mood: relieved

Ok, so, today was the day. The Dr. was very nice, a fetal heart specialist, and after reviewing the ultrasound and actually being in control of the wand himself for a time, told us that he was unable to find any heart defects. Needless to say, we're very very very pleased.That's a big weight off our shoulders. The baby measures perfectly for his gestation, no change in due date, it continues to be 10/5. He weighs 1 lb, 5 oz.

At this time, knowing what we know, we don't have to make any special delivery plans (meaning c-section), but can assume that as long as things stay good, I'll get to feel pain and push, then be up and around the next day! Not thrilled about the pain, because I'm a big whiney baby,(just ask people who know me) but I've actually done both ways, and believe me, the recovery after a vaginal birth is SOOOO much easier than recovering from a c-section.

I got a few pics, but my scanner wont scan because it wants new printer cartridges - grrr. I'll try to get that done this weekend.

I also asked about moving the remainder of my pregnancy to their office, based on experience, and he said no, really not necessary, would have said yes, had there been concerns about the heart, but no. So all is very rosey right this minute.

Have a very very good night, and upcoming weekend!
