Perinatologist Appointment

3 Comments

31 weeks 6 days – 57 days to go

Last week I mentioned that my OB heard something with baby’s heart and wanted me to see a specialist for a closer look. Today was that appointment.

We luckily got some good news. Baby does in fact have a premature heartbeat but the heart structure and rhythm are normal. The doctor said that in most cases it will correct on its own. Only 5% of the time does it turn into an issue where the baby’s heart rate stays accelerated and then it needs to be addressed. They do want it monitored so I will be doing weekly appointments from now until the end of the pregnancy.

They did a good job at reassuring me that everything should work itself out and that they will be closely listening for any changes.

I can’t believe I am at weekly appointments now. So crazy…
