Our son and DIL had an appointment with a Perinatal Specialist today. The doctor checked everything thoroughly and told them they do not need to be overly concerned at this point.
He told them that this happens in 1% of all the pregnancies he deals with. He also ruled out a couple of other problems that the "skipping" heart beat could signal.
All in all it was a good report and they feel much better. The doctor did tell them to move up their next appointment with their OB/GYN to check the heartbeat. If it were to speed up or slow down there would be more reason for concern.
This is one of the shots taken in the 4D sonogram. Isn't it amazing? She is so beautiful. I am totally in love.
Thank you so much for all your prayers. Don't stop! We want her heartbeat to be completely normal.
