Tomorrow is the "big" day in our family. Bigger than the 20 week u/s. It is the day we go in for the fetal echo at the hospital. We are hoping and praying that this little one has a "normal" heart.

Everyone has about a 1 in 100 chance of having a baby with a cardiac defect and our chance is now 1 in 50. Of course that means our chances are good that everything will be fine, but no matter how many people tell me that, i remind them that our chances the first time around were even better and we still had a heart baby, know what i mean?
Also at our 20 week u/s the dr. said she couldn't get a good picture of the heart and that while she thought she saw 4 chambers she couldn't be 100% sure and she also couldn't tell if their were any vsd's (holes) in the center because she couldn't get a good picture.
I was hoping that after our 20 week we'd feel someone of a relief and she'd say as far as she could tell things were good, but that wasn't the feeling we got at all. She basically said "oh well, i don't stare at hearts all day so you'll get a better idea at the fetal echo."
anyway, send me all the healthy heart vibes you can ladies! i'm soooo anxious. It will almost feel weird to have a "normal" baby assuming everything is good. We lost our first (m/c at 13 weeks), then had our heart baby, so i'm not used to "normal" lol
