I am happy to be able to finally post with some good news. Today the cardiologist came in to do an echocardiogram on Baby B. As Mark posted last week, there was a concern that she may have a ventricular septal defect (VSD). Well after a long look at her tiny heart the cardiologist did not feel that she has VSD and said we do not have anything to worry about. They also checked my cervix length and, although I don’t have much left, is had remained unchanged for 2 weeks now despite all of my contractions. Dr. Kazzi, our perinatologist, was very happy and seems to think we have a good chance at getting to 28 weeks. This Friday they will begin giving me steriod injections to help speed up the babies’ lung development and then we will meet with the NICU team on Monday so that they can explain what to expect when the babies do get here.
Tomorrow will be 23 weeks and we are feeling more hopeful with our good reports today. Mark has lots of projects now to get the house ready for the babies and I am starting my online shopping 🙂 The good news was such a nice boost! Thanks to everyone for all of your thoughts, prayers and support.
