OB Appointment #6

October 4, 2005 - 3:10 p.m. - Dr. Harmony Schroeder (actually saw MY doctor this time!)
29 Weeks - 4 Days

Weight: + .5 lbs. / + 8.5 lbs. overall
Blood Pressure: 110/68
Baby's Heartrate: ? - sounded fine to me
Height of Fundus: 30 cm.
Blood Test: Didn't have one this time but the results from the last one (for thyroid and anti-C antigen levels) were fine

I am experiencing tachycardia (racing heart) again this pregancy. Yesterday my heartrate was 140. But it goes away on it's own after about 15-20 minutes. Dr. said if it lasts more than 30 minutes I'm to go to the ER and have a EKG done. That's what they said last time too but it never came to that. It either went away on it's own or I was able to make it stop myself by laying down on my left side, like they said, and "bearing down". So I rather expect that it how it will go this time as well. It's hasn't been a real problem yet, but it sure is an uncomfortable feeling... I don't like it one bit!!

Next appointment in two weeks.

you need to stay off the stairmaster...

you've hardly gained any weight at all! Probably you'll have like a big gain right before the end.

You are totally right. My biggest weight gain is usually the last 6-8 weeks....which I'm approaching!
