I finally got an appointment with my regular doctor yesterday. She's very sweet . She set me up with a cardiologist appointment for tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. She said that, if I wasn't pregnant, she'd just keep an eye on me but better safe than sorry; she's going to let the cardiologist decide what's next.

She also took some blood to check my magnesium and potassium levels AND my thyroid and said they will get back to me about the results.

I haven't really felt that arrhythmia like I did last week. Maybe a few times here and there? Last week, it was every hour or more.

I think the cardio will probably put me on the holter monitor but I doubt that it will show anything. I'd be surprised if it does!

Anyway, that's all .
I had my rainbow baby on December 14, 2011. Now my family is complete!

I had the same thing happen around 15 weeks or so. I thought I was having a heart attack or something, it was crazy! It went on for a few weeks, they did an ekg and nothing abnormal and it went away on its own.

I hope you are ok!!

I'm glad they are playing it safe and getting right one it. I'm sure you'll be totally fine, but being proactive is best. Good luck tomorrow and KUP!
