Half baked

August 18, 2011

20 week scan today, and I was all prepared to hear the wonderful words I heard with Lady G “perfectly normal’.  It seems we have to wait a few weeks to hopefully hear that.  Io was apparently uncooperative during the scan and the sonographer wasn’t able to see the heart clearly – what presented appeared to be an enlarged ventricle, and he couldn’t jog the baby to get a better view to see whether this was really the case or not.

So we’re scheduled in for another scan in 3 weeks, when the heart should be bigger and easier to see.  Both the sonographer and our Ob have told us not to worry, and I guess the fact that we’ve not been referred to a specialist or requiring a special scan suggests that it’s likely to be nothing.  Luckily there seems to be very little info when I google, which is preventing me from fearing the worst!  Otherwise, all appeared to be good – and now we wait.

(Nine, as usual, nyet to The Units until we know for sure what we’re dealing with.)

    i hope everything’s ok and i’m sure it will be. louise had a murmur when she was born, we went to see a pediatric cardiologist and he said it was so not a big deal, that he never had to see us again! try not to worry, although, i know it’s hard.
