Hello sorry to hear what’s happening. Did they explain anything to you? It’s awful that they’d just make you wait for so many days.

No they said they didnt know much as there job is just to see if soemthing is wrong x

Aw I’m sorry to hear of that news . Hopefully it’s nothing too big and with early detection they can be prepared for the babies due date! It could be a little heart murmur or a little whole which some heal on their own & close. I hope Monday brings you good news Hunni thinking of you xx

She was scanning and noticed that the ventricles arnt crossing in the right place and she couldnt see the chambers properly but baby wouldn't budge so she could get a better view so just have to wait and see if the fetal medicine consultant has to say.

God will settle the baby in all perfection.

Hi Ceden273 I hope you and baby are well. Have you seen the consultant yet?

Yea not to good news as baby's heart is very complex as the main arteries in the heart are the wrong way round and at the momwnt that is okay and that will be okay once babies born as long as the baby has a hole between the two lower chambers so baby will need open heaet surgery soon after birth x

So sorry to hear about your complication but it’s so amazing that they can operate when the babies born. I really hope this is the only thing you have to worry about in your pregnancy and can relax as much as possible. It sounds very positive xx
