Irregular Heartbeat

Hi, just found out today that my baby has an irregular heartbeat aka heart arrythmia. Has anyone else gone through this? If so what type of monitoring or test did they do? Her heart rate has been fine up until today and 20 week heart scan was normal. 

I have an EKG scheduled for monday but that seems like forever and a day.

  • I don't know what your going through but I'm sending thoughts and prayers your (and LO's) way!
  • what information did they give you so far? is she bradycardic or tachycardic? what is the usual hb and what was it today? What kind of arrhythmia is it?

    Standard electrical conduction problems they will look for at the EKG:

    *heart block
    *prolonged QT interval
    *atrial flutter

    I am the mom of 2 babies with heart problems, I can give you a lot of info on what will happen if you want to give me more details on what was said to you at your appointment.


  • What type of arrhythmia? I'm a rep for a company that makes pacemakers so I know a little bit about arrhythmias in adults.
