On Tuesday at work I started to feel very short of breath and my arms and fingers were tingly and my heart was racing. I didn't have any swelling though. Called the doctor anyway and they wanted me to go to L&D just to double check. My blood pressure always stayed in the normal range but my heart beat was in the 160s-170s which they didn't love. So they did an EKG which came back completey normal. Baby's heartbeat was normal the whole time and he continued to move around. They monitored me for a couple hours - drew blood, tested urine, etc - then sent us home. They told me to stay home yesterday b/c they wanted 24 hours without episode before I came back to work. A little hiccup but nothing to worry about it.
I think my DH was scared half to death though. He beat me to the hospital and had twice as long of a drive. Poor guy.
