It was recomended that we go ahead and get an amniocentesis since heart defects are often linked to genetic disorders. The procedure wasn't bad, but the high-risk OB was a total jerk. The good news is I never have to see him again since I will be set up with the high-risk OBs at The Hospital of The University of Pennsylvania which is adjacent to CHOP. That way I can be with Abby within an hour of her birth.
We got all the results from the amnio this week and it was all clear. Yay! At least we don't have to worry about any genetic problems. Plus, they confirmed that she is for sure a girl.
Our next step is an appointment on October 16 at CHOP where we will meet the high-risk OB, get yet another fetal echo, meet with the cardiologists (again) and we finally meet Dr. Tom Spray who will be Abby's surgeon. It's going to be a long day, but look for our next update then.
