I have to have heart surgery, and I'm pregnant? ?

Okay, so my doctor told me that I have to have heart surgery because I have only two heart valves, and I'm supposed to have three. I'm supposed to have surgery to put an artificial one in, because it's starting to cause a blockage. Anyway, I'm just wondering if I should wait to have the surgery because I'm pregnant? I mean, will it affect the baby at all?

Serious answers please.

    You should arrange a meeting for you, your cardiologist AND your obstetrician so you can all discuss this together. That's really the best way to decide what's best for you and your baby
