I'm usually pretty quiet about what worries me and I dont often vent until Im pushed to my limits.
Today Im sharing. On Friday I had an ecg, then had to wear a heart monitor for 24 hrs. Then Saturday I went back for the echo cardiogram. My bp is normal most often but then it goes down to around 95/87. When I do anything physical my pulse races, I was carrying laundry up 7 stairs and my pulse went up to 155. So not normal.
When I was pregnant with my twins one of my heart chambers was enlarged but there was no follow up after birth (12 years ago) so I dont know if that ever resolved itself as the Dr expected.
Anyways they didnt book a regular appointment because as they said, "We want the Dr to see you as soon as she can" Well thats tomorrow.
Im a little afraid of what she is going to tell me. So if you could just keep me in your thoughts....


Update***
I think all of your prayers helped!
The Dr said my heart is strong, my pulse runs high, my heart is enlarged but thats fairly common during pregnancy. They are doing another echo in 4 weeks. They are doing a bunch of blood work to check my iron, thyroid etc. She suspects my low bp and pulse is a reflection of low iron, which has been an issue in the past, but was ok when I had it checked in January. So best scenario is my iron is low, I get the shots (ouch! but I dont absolrb it when taken orally) and my heart settles down and as a bonus, I wont be so tired all the time!! Ill be hoping for that!

Popping in to let you know I'm thinking of you (like always). I hope you come back from your appointment feeling relieved.

BTW, I almost wrote 'pooping in' instead of 'popping in' Nothing says you care like a drive by pooping LOL

Lol Nicole. I bet that would make her heart race.
I hope all goes smooth and there is nothing wrong. KUP
