19 weeks

On December 6, I went to my 16 week appointment to find out the sex of newest Baby P. I left there with a CD of the sonogram that would tell Scott and I the sex of our child, but I also left there with the devastating news that our baby had a possible heart defect. We watched the CD and found out that we were having a baby girl but were overcome with sadness about her heart. On December 7, we were referred to a perinatologist and found out that our baby definitely had a heart defect, and we needed to see a pediatric cardiologist. On December 8, we found out our sweet girl has Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome and will need 2, possibly 3, surgeries after birth. The first one will be 3-5 days after birth, the second one will be at 3-6 months and the third at around 3 years of age.

I am due May 23 so am 19 weeks pregnant today. As you can imagine, we are overwhelmed with information. A lot has happened in the last 3 weeks! In the coming weeks and months, Scott and I are going to share our story and struggles. We are putting our faith in God and praying for the healing of our precious baby.

Please keep us in your prayers!

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Deuteronomy 31:6
