i was told that my baby has fluid around the heart and also the doctor could not get a good picture of the heart he said that one of the chambers is smaller than it is supposed to be my question is why could this be anything that i do? smoking, stress?
Probably nothing to do with stress. If you smoke, you should start cutting back to decrease the carbon monoxide that goes in to your system when you inhale a cigarette. While it probably doesn't have anything to do with your baby's abnormal heart findings, smoking certainly can't be helping the baby any.
Good luck. I'm sure your doctor will be referring you for another ultrasound to try to get a better look. Keep us informed.
