Alirght, so I had my echo this morning to check on the baby's heart to see if they could find any reason for the skipped beats. The tech scanned the heart for 45 minutes and watched blood go in and out, looked at all of the arteries/veins, etc and then the MFM came in and looked at the heart in 3D and told me everything looked fine. He said basically exactly what laura1 told me happened with her daughter. The baby has been having PAC's (aka premature atrial contractions) and that they are just caused by the heart not being completely developed yet. He said most of the time this clears up before birth or shortly after delivery. He told me they will continue to watch it just to make sure it doesn't turn into tachycardia (where the heart beats too fast). Then I guess there is medication that needs to be given through the placenta if this happens as that is dangerous. He told me that *most* babies who experience this have other things going on too, and he didn't see anything to be concerned about during the scan. So, from the impression I got, as long as that doesn't happen, it doesn't seem to be anything to worry about.
Oh happy day!!!
