In brief: Possibly.

It all depends on what type of cardiac condition you have; if it is only a mild mitral valve prolapse for example, you should anticipate completely normal outcomes.
If it is something more serious, your cardiologist and perinatologist should devise a birthing plan to assist you and minimize the risks to your health.
