I just spent the last 28 hours at the hospital. Went into to the dr yesterday morning because of heart palpitations and pain in my left side. She wanted me admitted for 24 hours of observations and tests to make sure everything is ok.

I ended up on IVs for 26 hours, got two large doses of antibiotics (apparently I still am fighting an infection of some sort), an EKG, and echocardiogram, and a whole lotta boring time spent in the hospital. The baby was happy they only monitored him for about 30 minutes and he was happy as lark the whole time.

They did determine my heart palpitations are NOT related to a defect or any actual problem with my heart or blood flow to the heart. So that's a relief. I do have to take antibiotics for 3 more days and go back in a week, but at least the pregnancy itself is progressing well, even if my body isn't holding up the best lol!

But I'm home at last! Missed the kiddos like heck and have to go back to work tomorrow.

Staying in the hospital sucks...unless someone considers a mini vacation. But don't you feel better knowing you don't have a heart defect.?

I went to the ER with sharp pains near my heart last week. I was luckily only there for four hours. It is very scary! They determined my heart was okay too.

Glad all is well.

So glad baby's okay and so is your heart! Hope those antibiotics kick the infection. Sucks that you were in the hospital for such a long time.
