That's right, my holter monitor. I think it can go with just about anything! Don't you?
I figured as soon as this monitor went on, it would be my luck that my heart would all of the sudden behave, and the palpitations would stop. Well, I was WRONG. They have actually been pretty prominent today, wearing me out a bit! I hope that because of this, the cardiologist is able to get a good idea of what is going on.
I had some swelling on my legs, actually just my left leg, the other day and it had me worried. Of COURSE the worst is going through my mind. I have heard of instances where women get Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) during pregnancies, and although it resolves after the baby is born, it is not easy on the mom's heart. I know, the odds of this are slim to none, but the heart palpitations and swelling so early in the pregnancy have me worried! Good thing is my BP was normal, and there has not been a single trace of protein in my urine so far, so pre-eclampsia is not a factor as of right now.
Sometimes working in the medical field is a BAD thing at times like this!! I did, however, purchase some compression hose to help bade off the swelling and avoid getting clots since it is clear there is currently some sort of circulation problem. Better be safe than sorry. I also started some low dose aspirin that Dr. C had told me i could start if it "would make you fell better" around week 7. I didn't feel the need at that point, but I started it this past week.
June 17th I meet with the cardiologist. Pray everything comes out ok!
About two years ago I started writing a book, which from time to time I will probably post chapters from. I thought the most interesting part of my life had past. BOY WAS I WRONG! The story of how my husband and I met was an amazing, romantic, and almost too good to be true story, but as we two-step through life, we have endured more than one couple should ever have to in our first 3 years together. Each obstacle that we face, the closer we become to each other and to God. So if you want to join us and follow this conga line, I promise, you will not be disappointed. You may laugh, cry, but I promise you will at least be entertained.
