|this is randomly Tommy's fave preggo picture of me - perhaps it's because I'm wearing the H&M top he picked out :-)|
Today my belly will get slathered up in blue jelly for another ultrasound. But this ultrasound makes me a little nervous...we will be examining the chambers, valves and vessels of our little girl's heart via a miraculous test called a fetal echocardiogram. As I sit here and write this my eyes are getting a teeny bit watery, and I am nervous.
My hubby's little brother was born with serious congenital heart malformations and has undergone numerous open heart surgeries, many while he was a baby and small kiddo. Thankfully, his brother is doing well and hasn't had complications in years. Yet, because of this family history, we have decided to investigate the heart of our lil one....just in case we need to make arrangements for a delivery at a specialty hospital.
Wish our little family blessings of good health friends. We appreciate it.
