been a very long time since i have come here.. was doing really well.. see i was feeling alot of skipped beats and chest pain.. went to ER,, was diagnosed with acid reflux disease.. then noticed i was getting skipped beats when anxious so i attribute it to anxiety sometimes.. went to hospital they did and Echocardiogram and i wore a holter for 24 hrs. Echo saidmitral valve prolapse grade 1.. which was explained to me as no big deal everything was fine. (actually the dr couldnt stress enough how mild mild mild it is with me) Holter caught a few heart palps but results showed everything was normal. Having these tests relieved my mind alot.. i stopped caffeine intake (am a big pepsi and chocolate fan) noticed the palps were gone for the most part.. i have a habit of doin that.. go caffeine free for so long.. think palps are gone and go back to chocolate/pepsi again and of course heart palps come back, stupid me lol. anyhoo,, i am now 5 months pregnant,. dr says heart pumps harder while pregnant so feeling more heart palps is to be expected. I admit i feel them sometimes but really only after havin choc/pepsi or anxious or bending down, or laying in bed etc.. well today i am extremely stressed.. my grandmother is dying, my work environment is awful (i think they want me gone cuz i am pregnant but cant do it becuz i am pregnant), my 4 yr old has his first cavity i think and i have no coverage for him.. money is tight etc etc..basically life things as usual.. i have a stethascope here at home to listen to my babys heartbeat,, well of course tonight i started to listen to my heart after feeling the heart palps.. i have never heard them before thru a stethascope so was scarey to hear the extra beat.. sometimes this happens for hrs.. tonight especially.. probably cuz i stress about it and was laying down when hearing it.. but anyways just wanted to vent.. i mean i am sure this is normal (at least according to the drs) but i just like to vent and hear others stories for support!
