     a thousand HUGS!!

 You have doctors that you can closely work with and monitor you-  I think that it might not be ideal, but you have some help around.

Best wishes sweetie!

I would get ahold of your heart doctor ASAP, as well as your obgyn/midwife. That way they can start working with you and getting you the medical attention you need to have a safe and healthy pregnancy. Good luck

Hugs! I think with careful medical surveillance you will do alright. Just call your docs right away. If it's any comfort to you, my 94 year old grandmother has had congestive heart failure for 35 years and is still going strong.

Sorry I'd go to another state for an abortion. Your first child needs you and if you continue with the pregnancy you and the second child likely won't make it. Best of luck though.

My cousin has this and did have two kids but she barely made it and the fact she's still alive is amazing. Your dh needs to get snipped. The amount of meds required for her is insane and I can't imagine subjecting a baby to all those meds in utero.

How were you diagnosed? Have you gotten a second opinion? A cousin.of mines wife had congestive while pregnant and did wonderfully And is still doing very well
