I was diagnosed with ppcm shortly after delivering my first

Customer Question

I was diagnosed with ppcm shortly after delivering my first child and that followed with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure. That was almost 8 years ago. I tried to get a tubaligation but was denied due to age (28) and only having a single child. I have recently discovered I am pregnant despite being told by local health department I was not 4 months ago. I haven't had my first appt with ob yet but I am scared and worried about what will happen to me. Please help

When was the last time you had your echocardiogram done and what was the ejection fraction?
