Well, I go and see the dr this morning for a routine visit. I am going to talk about all the cramping that I have been dealing with, along with my heart. I have a heart condition called PSVT that is basically a rapid heartbeat of the upper chamber of my heart. It didn't bother me that much when I wasn't pregnant...I maybe had an episode once every two weeks. But since I am pregnant, it is happening once a day to once every two days. So, I will see if they can prescribe me some medication to control it, or if I have to see someone else.

I will update y'all when i get home. Think happy, positive thoughts!!!

Amy

good luck!

I get a rapid heartbeat when I'm pregnant, feels almost like it skips a beat too. My DR told me if it stays under 100 bpm then I'm ok. I found drinking gatorade to help - don't know why, probably the potassium.

I know a lot of people who said they had a rapid heartbeat during pregnancy and there was a different cause or no cause found with each of them- with one it was her thyroid and she never had problems before this, so that was weird to find out. I guess this is completely normal- good luck and keep us posted!

Dr. appt went well....

First thing she said to me was, I think we need an u/s. I was so happy I started to cry!!! So, on Tuesday I go to make sure everything is A-oK with our baby. It will be hard waiting until then, but I can do it.

As far as the heart problems...I have the option to see my family dr, a cardiologist or a dr that specializes in high-risk pregnancy. I am not sure which route that I am going to take. I think that I will wait until after the u/s to make sure the little bean is alright and then go from there.

Everything else looks good. Measuring the right size for 7w2d.

Thanks for thinking about me today!!!

Amy

Tuesday is tomorrow!! YAY!! Hope that the u/s goes well & glad your dr appt went well.

I had a ton of cramping in the first trimester of this pregnancy... especially between 7-10 weeks. The midwife said that's normal & baby seems fine so far.
