I was listening to my baby's HB last night with my doppler and noticed for the first time that her heart sounded odd to me....irregular HB's. It would beat steadily, then there would be an extra beat or two, then would be normal again. I got pretty worried and called my OB and he had me put the doppler on so he could listen. He thinks she's developing PVC's (premature ventricular contracions). I have them myself (my heart skips beats), but this was def hers and not mine. He said not to worry about it cause it's pretty common seeing as baby's heart is pretty immature and it can go away as quickly as it came or it might take a few months after birth to correct itself. So, he's having me monitor her heartrate a few times a day. What he would be most concerned about is if her HR were to drop under 100 bpm..then I would need to go to L & D right away. Her HR is 120-128 at rest and in the 140's when she's active right now. I have an appt with the OB on Thurs and he'll do an ultrasound to look her over and look at her heart activity to see what's it's doing.
I REALLY don't need anymore worries. It's bad enough I'm still hoping she turns around...I really don't need this too. :/ I'm so anxious for her to be born already...I just want her safe. I still have a little under
