20 week appointment
Fri, 08-17-2012 - 9:55am
Very good! Baby sounds good :smileyhappy: heard the HR and I even had her check for the arythmia that they found at the perinatal doc and she couldn't hear it. So this means one of two things - either it corrected in the last three weeks (they said this was likely), or it's so faint that only their high tech equipment could pick it up. I'm hoping it's the first scenario but either case it not too bad. The midwife had predicted a girl so she was thrilled she was right. My weight is a little high (I think) but they don't seem worried at all. I go in for GD testing next month so hopefully all is well there. My husbands sweating it because he's type 1 but I've told him that has no impact on my body. We don't have it anywhere in the family so I'd be surprised if there was an issue. Next appointment is in 10 days with the perinatal doc to talk about the arythmia and finish the anatomy analysis ...make sure everything is developing properly. I really hope that goes well and I hope I feel her move soon!!

Hi Jen,

YEAH for pink team! Congrats on baby being a girl..girls are fun and fun to buy for! It really sounds like your doctors are staying on top of the possable heart arrthmia and that is good! I bet that everyhting will be fine and it will clear on it's own but if not there are things the doctors can do to help the baby right? Did they tell you what they can do if she still has it when she is born? I know how scary it can be when something may be wrong with your child I have a little girl who has seizures..or had seizures. The nero doc think she may have grown out of them but only time will tell..Anyway girly stay strong and I will be saying prayers that this may have fixed it self before your little girl is born! KUP!!!
