Pregnancy and heart conditions.

Hi,
I have a question about pregnancy and heart conditions. I am a 31 year old female with ASD, borderline pulmonary hypertension, mild to moderate aortic stenosis resulting from a bicuspid aortic valve, and a twice repaired coarctation of the aorta. I'm wondering about the risks of pregnancy. My cardiologist thinks that I shouldn't have any problems as long as nothing changes. However, I'm more worried that pregnancy will compound some of my issues. Thanks.

As long as your coarctation was repaired surgically, you are pretty much protected from the risk of aortic dissection.  The other lesions and conditions are very unlikely to cause any problems as far as pregnancy goes.
