I went to the ER tonight because I was having issues with tachycardia; my heart rate ranged from 125-145 for the past two days. I'm finally on a beta blocker now (Metoprolol). The ER doctor decided to do an hcg test and ultrasound. My hcg is 9925, the ultrasound showed that my EDD is October 19th, I was 5w5d. The ER doctor said there was no fetal pole, I'm a little nervous.. I had bright red bleeding with my daughter, I went to the same ER and the doctor told me she was probably etopic. Clearly they were wrong.
I need to set up an appointment my OB for two days from now.
I hope you feel better and I have to agree with everyone else. 2 days before I had emergency surgery for a ruptured tube, the ER told me I was having a normal m/c. I really lost all confidence in ER Dr's and the technicians. I just hope it was too early and again they have no idea what they are talking about.
Hope things go well. I wouldn't put a lot of weight into what an ER doctor says, they are great with emergencies but pregnancy is not their specialty. I carry Metoprolol for episodes of heart palpitations, my cardiologist says its the safest for pregnancy!
If the ER doc read the ultrasound, I wouldn't worry. They aren't skilled at that.
I took Labetalol last time. I had a consult with a Perinatologist who ok'd Nadalol, but after taking it a couple times, I found that it gave her fetal bradycardia (I had a doppler and I also went to L&D because her heart rate was much lower than usual and she wasn't moving). Labetalol worked so-so, but the baby didn't have anymore bradycardia episodes when I took it. I had another L&D trip as I was having dizzy spells, but it turned out that my heart rate was spiking to the 200's briefly, but once I increase the Labetalol dose I was fine.
I may do some research on Metoprolol (I've taken it before--will have to remember why I switched).
