Again, good news, no growth of my aneurysm! The cardiologist did update me a little and I do know that I will be induced (cardiologist said they want to make sure I am medicated before labor begins so my heart doesn't go into "fight or flight"). My due date is 11/11/11 and if my body isn't progressing towards labor then I will be induced that morning and if anything happens before then, then baby may come earlier. Cut off for having a c-section is typically at 4.0cm so hopefully it won't grow! Although, she said if it does start growing at the end of pregnancy I still may end up having a c-section even if it is slightly less than 4.0cm. Please, please keep the prayers coming that I stay clear of a dissection.
I have had a few appointments recently - next one is next Friday for an ultrasound (yay we can find out if it is going to be a girl or a boy). Names have been picked out. If it's a girl, she will be Willow Marlee and if baby is a boy, Benjamin George. Then a couple weeks after that I have to go back for a fetal echocardiogram to make sure baby's heart is healthy. In July, Henry has to go to Dartmouth to also have some tests done on his heart, as a precaution, since they do not know if I had the Ascending Aortic Aneurysm while pregnant with him (Henry does have a heart murmur).
I will keep you all updated.
