Hello mamas! I am due February 4th with our third BOY! We had our 18 wk ultrasound about a week ago, and they detected some heart abnormalities. We were sent to a fetal cardiologist who did a fetal echo and found that our baby has transposition of the great arteries (TGA). We love our cardiologist and he answered many of our questions, but I'm really reaching out to see if anyone has ever experienced this or know anyone who has? Feeling a little nervous for baby 😔

Wow, what a tough thing to face. What did the cardiologist have to say? What can they do?
