Cardiologist Update

I know I am behind on updating about my results from the cardiologist. I have been very busy (which, I suppose, is normal) and very tired (unfortunately, this has also become normal). I decided to give you the short story now, and maybe elaborate later.

Short Story: All of the tests showed that my heart is normal and working well with one small exception. I do have one valve that leaks a little. The doc said that is pretty common during pg. He told me I shouldn't need to worry unless I start to get a lot of palpitation episodes that lower my blood pressure to the point of feeling dizzy or passing out. So, that's pretty good news. And, apparently, the nodules were on long enough, and close enough to the correct position, to be able to detect my heart well enough to satisfy the doctor.

I have my 14w check up tomorrow, so I should have some more updates after that.

Hubby started his new job today and had a great first day. It was nice to see him happy and even excited about his job! Praise God!

I'm so glad that your appointment went well. We see people up in L & D all the time who said they they discovered they had a slight heart murmer as you described that they discovered in pregnancy. I think it's more common than we realize. Your 14wk checkup that's exciting, how did it go? Great I hope!
