went to the doctor just now for the baby, and i was explaining about my short of breath and things of that nature that i posted earlier. I have a heart condition i guess! My heart is irregular and it skips beats and all that jaz. They usually put you on medication for it but they dont want to at this point in my pregnancy. We will see about after birth. :?

Skipping a beat is called a-fib.



"Atrial fibrillation or flutter is a common type of abnormal heartbeat in which the heart rhythm is fast and irregular."

You'll be ok:) I have heart problems too. If it was serious they ould have admitted you to the PCU.I spent two days there.If you plan to BF you can't take heart meds either. My cardiologist/ Electrophysiologist told me no meds for the pregnancy and to bf for the fist six months.

No, that would be abnormally fast heart beat.
