As of now, I go to my OB, to my Endocrinologist for my gestational diabetes, and to my hospital to see the perinatologists/maternal fetal specialists. Now, I get to add a cardiologist to the list.
My heart has been giving me some issues for the past week. I think its just so overwhelmed with happiness that it doesn't know how to react. It seems my adorable kiddos already know how to get to mommy's heart, God bless them. Every so often, no matter what I'm doing, I get shortness of breath along with very rapid heartbeats. The best way to describe it is to tell you that its the same feeling you have after you've been running like crazy and suddenly stop, you immediately feel your heart pumping away fast and you try to catch your breath until it eases. This happens even if I'm just sitting minding my own business (a.k.a. doing nothing.)
Personally, I thought it might be normal for being 26 weeks pregnant with twins, which I read happens, but both my OB and the diabetes Dr. got concerned as soon as I mentioned it. They need some chill pills if you ask me. I think I'm just fine. Or I was thinking that anyway until I called to make the appointment with the cardiologist. I explained the situation and the receptionist was telling me that they might not be able to see me until maybe 2 weeks, it sounded good to me, then she said she wanted to double check since I'm this far along in my pregnancy. When she came back to the phone she tells me that they need to see me immediately and that I should come in today. They sure have a way to calm a woman down when she (apparently) has a heart condition, no?
As of now, I'm still pretty calm about the whole thing. I mean its just my heart, nothing major. You know how doctors are, they overreact over every little thing... but just in case I'll go check it out to see what they say.... oh, and Mom: DON'T FREAK OUT!
