Hi, I'm new to the site.
I have congenital AS, it has largely been asymptomatic, while maturing slightly each year, until recently it has been considered moderate/mild.
Last year at my annual check up I spoke with my cardiologist about pregnancy and he felt there would be no problem. I have just been for my check up and am 10 weeks pregnant, however my valve had now narrowed from 44/100 to 66/100 which is alot compared to normal. My cardiologist is concerned by this as he wouldn't expect this for another 6 weeks, he thinks that I may need to use beta blockers/diuretics he is also talking about early delivery possibly by c-section if it is far from my due date, if not induction but with assisted birth to keep the pushing phase short.
This has taken me by suprise, I know it is getting worse and eventually I will need surgery, but I have been very lucky so far.
I'm just wondering if there is anyone else who has been in a similar situation?
