Hi! I haven't been on here at all this pregnancy. #2 is definitely different!
Well now here I am just wondering if anyone could relate. I have had episodes of high heart rates (77bpm on minute, 122 the next). So I asked my OB who then sent me to a cardiologist. I knew they'd just say stress+pregnancy is causing it and its normal.
Well my EKG was abnormal and he wanted to rule out pulmonary embolisms (my biggest fear) so I had a D-Dimer blood test. That came back slightly abnormal but apparently its not unusual for these results in pregnancy but PE's have not been ruled out completely. I have an echocardiogram on Friday and I'm really struggling with anxiety on this one. If my heart looks normal, we will do a CT scan to look for clots. I feel like my only 2 options for the outcome are that it's something wrong with my heart or something wrong with my lungs (PE). Anyone else have similar symptoms or anything to help put me at ease? I know anxiety only makes it worse but I am struggling!
