Intro to me.

Hi my name is Brittany, I am 34 weeks pregnate with a baby girl who has Hypoplastic left heart syndrom. Bassicaly the left side of her heart dosnt work the way it should. When she is born she with undergo 3 surgerys to make her heart work the way it should. As of right now she is growing small. She is only 3.5 pounds at 34 weeks. I am also having issues with her amniotic fluid dropping went from 9 to 6.7 in a week and a half. We see an obgyn 2 times a week and a cardioligst once a month. She aslo has a 2 vessel umbilical cord. I have a history of hypertension also. So to sum it up this pregnancy has been quite the rollercoaster so far. I have a 11 month old son also. We have nothing ready for a baby girl due to the fact that we dont know what will happen. Her first surgery has a 75% survival rate so hopefully things will go good.
