Enlarged heart in unborn baby..

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and a few weeks ago found out my sons heart was enlarged and possibly misshaped. So they sent me to a specialist the other day & he agreed with my dr that it was mildly enlarged, but didn't day anything about being misshaped.

All of my sons organs are there and working great, including his heart. Every thing is there, no missing chambers or anything, and blood flow is great, and his heartbeat is always really good. He moves normally and everything also. They are sending me to another specialist, but I was just wondering if anyone else went through this or something similar and what the outcome was.

Thanks!

My friend had surgery at 18 for an enlarged heart. I am thinking its great they caught it early so they can monitor and fix it if needed.

My cousin was born with a heart the size of an adult mans. He had to take steroids to help his lungs reach the same functioning capacity. He was ok, didn't need any operations or anything. He was a normal kid, liked hockey and music. Got average grades. He'd be 23 now

He passed away at 18 from reasons completely unrelated to his congenital heart condition.
