Mixed emotions after 20 week ultrasound
My husband and I just found out at our routine 20-week ultrasound that baby has a small ventricular septal defect between the heart chambers. It will be monitored further in case it doesn’t close on its own by birth. It caught us completely by surprise as our first pregnancy was straightforward for the most part. We already have a plan in place for the best and worst case outcomes (different delivering hospital, specialists, etc.) and hope it can help ensure a good outcome for baby. Please share with us any words of encouragement and your positive stories as well as any helpful advice for such pregnancies!
