New Baby Update

We had our "big" ultrasound today and learned that our little 3/4 lb. baby is a BOY!!! That evens the family up at 3 boys and 3 girls :) The tech tried to get as good of a look as possible, but the baby was kind of lazy and kind of content to just lay there in the same, hard to view position. The high risk OB came in and took some measurements and said that all things now point to a healthy baby. All parts are proportionate and show excellent growth. Looks like the heart has four chambers and things appear to be in the right place, but he said it is too early to say for sure. I am going back in a couple weeks for a fetal echocardiogram done by a cardiologist (Dr. Bromberg's partner) and then in four weeks we see the high risk OB again just to make sure everything is still okay. He said that there is a possibility there is a small VSD (hole) there but when I asked if it was small enough that it might go away on it's own or at least not require open heart surgery he replied, "or not be there at all." That made me feel better.

Congratulations on a healthy baby boy! We'll pray for the VSD to fall into the 'or not be there at all' category!
