I went in for an anatomy scan ultrasound last Friday at 21 weeks and they found that our baby had an irregular heart rhythm. Structurally they couldn't see any defects and his heart rate has always been normal. But as we were watching his heart contract about every 30 seconds to a minute his heart would slow and there would be about 4 beats that looked different from the rest. Then it would go back to normal and look perfect again. Everything else on the scan looked normal. My doctor referred me to perinatology where I will go and have another ultrasound the end of next week and talk to them before they determine whether I need to be referred to a fetal cardiologist. So basically I was just wondering if anyone has experiences with this or has seen it before and how significant it was in the life of their baby after birth? My doctor didn't give me much info on it and I am driving myself crazy wondering if my baby is going to be alright.
Thanks so much!
