Hey gals..I went to my cardiologist appointment this past week to find out that my heart condition got worse after I had my lil girl (7mth old). So he told me no more children. My hubby and I have been fighting over whether to have 2 or 3 for about a year. The news has hit our family hard. I want to go against the docs orders, but not sure it's worth the risk. I didn't have any complications with Ashlyn (my lil girl) until delivery and then my body stressed too much and stressed her so we did a c-section. So I don't see why I can't just plan a c-section this next time. Anyway what do all of you think? Any words of support or something to ease the pain of hearing my lil girl may be the only child?

I agree with Penny. You could go and get a second opinion and talk to your OB/GYN and the cardiologist and see if you had a pregnancy more planned would and could it be better and not a health risk. Good luck.
