Has anyone of you ladies been told that your child has a mild heart murmur? I just got out of my sons drs appointment with his pedi, and she says she hears a mild murmur, although she said its nothing really serious, I as a mother am freaking out!!! I have scheduled an appointment with a cardiologist and to get chest xrays, I mean he is only a year old and I am so scared and worried. If any of you mommas out there have been told the same can you plz tell me what happened or is happening?
TIA

Me, my little sister, AND my niece were all told we had heart mururs when we were born. I remember being little and going up to the children's hospital and being put on a heart monitor.. I got to see the ultrasound type thing of my heart. It turned out that all we had (all 3 of us!) was an extra band of tissue in our hearts. The doctor told me I had music in my heart. We all grew out of it. So that may be the case for your LO too.



Good luck either way!

the doctor told me that as well, my LO was 2 months and they told me not to freak out [yeah right!] anyways, we went to the cardiologist and he said that he hasn't seen such a beautiful perfect heart in such a long time! Nothing was wrong, he said sometimes they just want to be safe but it is normal for small babies to have a slight murmur while they are still developing.



eta. if your LO is a year i'm not sure. i skipped over that part... a lot of people responded to my post saying they ran marathons and such with a murmur!

If it's just a mild murmer, I wouldn't be too concerned. My daughter just had Open heart surgery for a moderate VSD and other defects; I wish you luck :)

I have one babe and I grew out of it. My mom freaked out when she heard it and it ended up not affecting me EVER. Hopefully he does the same. :D Think positively.

Thank you. Yeah he's my little trooper. He's a fighter and a happy boy and has his big sister to look out for him too :) good luck with the chest X-rays. Are they going to do an Eco as well? That's the ultra sound of his heart.

Echoes are pretty straight forward, my wee one has had nine or ten-EKGs aren't too bad, the probes are horribly sticky lol.
I hope your son's appointment goes great, no chold should have to go through the trauma of OHS. Good luck hun :)
