I got some worry-some news today.
I went for that follow-up ultrasound (last one by perinatologist, baby was hiding under my stoma, so Dr. said he couldn't see all of her heart that he wanted to. He told me he didn't anticipate anything wrong, but to come back for sure.)
Well, it turns out he does think there may be something wrong with her heart. He wasn't very specific, but said he didn't see all of the anatomical parts he thinks there should be by now. So, he's sending us to a pediatric cardiologist to evaluate her heart.
I was in such shock, that I didn't ask many questions. I totally didn't expect anything like that.
He told me it could be anything from a chromosomal abnormality to something just specific to her heart or even that nothing is wrong, and they'll think everything looks ok.
I am very scared. the nurse is supposed to call me sometime to set up an appt. for the next ultrasound, and I'm just a nervous wreck.
I know this doesn't have anything to do with my stoma, but what about all those CT scans I had just a couple of years ago, or the Celebrex I was taking until I found I was pregnant (I was about 4 weeks), or the allergy meds, or the inhaler.
I feel so helpless and so worried.
