Today I had the echocardiogram to see if my heart will be strong enough to go for a natural childbirth. The technician told me what she found and the doctors will decide from there as to what they will do. I know that the doctors had suggested inducing me for a natural birth earlier than 40 weeks but now they will have to add in just one more factor.
A Patent Foramen Ovale was found in today's echocardiogram. I'm not sure just how much more it will complicate things and I am still hoping to have a natural childbirth.
It really isn't a big deal as a lot of folks have one. I'm not too worried. But I'll still have to deal with what the doctors want and hope it matches what I'd like to have for a birth.
So because I'm at an increased risk for stroke it is a good thing that I've been on a baby aspirin regime for more than a year now. This might really help me out if I'm allowed to go natural.

And yes this could be the cause of some of my migraines too. Rather interesting find today but like I said I'm not too worried about it.
