Hello- On Valentines day we had laser surgery and and amnio reduction on the recipient. The following day during our ultrasound our Donor baby did not have a heart beat. We had a heart echo a couple of days later on the recipient because there was some thickening of the heart and one of the valves was leaking. The Dr. assured us that this is reversible and that we would have to have follow up echo's to keep an eye on it. The Dr's believe it will recover because now that there is not as much blood being pumped and isn't being over worked. Has anyone else had heart issues in this type of situation? Also after the surgery my cervix shortened and I was admitted and put on Magnesium. After a couple of days my cervix had lengthened, I believe to 2.1, and they were comfortable sending me home on bedrest. I'm just hoping that someone has had these experiences with positive outcomes. I now will be going for weekly ultrasounds and heat echo's every 2-3 weeks. Thanks for reading!
