My SO keeps calling me Robo Cop...

Posted by   + Show Post
I've been having irregular heart beats over the past few weeks. I'm pregnant and I hear that's a thing - so I wasn't worried. It was like one 5 minute interval of what felt like my heart skipping every 4th beat, and it only happened like ever 3-4 days. Well a few days ago it increased. A lot. Tuesday it happened 3 times in a span of 2 hours - and that shit hurts. My heart pounds really hard, my chest hurts, and I feel sick after. The next day it happened at work twice and I had to sit down til it stopped. Went to the ER after and they did some tests, and told me to run in Friday to grab a 24 hour holster monitor.

Let me tell you. This mother fcker is sexy. 5 wires strapped to my chest and a 2 foot cord running to the worlds largest and oldest looking beeper lol AND if it doesn't catch any beat skips, I have to get a 3 day one, and then a 30 day one. I have 11 hrs left with this thing and my hearts behaved so far. It needs to skip! Just one damn time so I don't have to do this again!!

My SO keeps referring to me as stupid characters. "I've always fantasized about a sexy female RoboCop"
"Too bad it isn't Halloween, you could go as Tron"

Does your heart also beat really fast too? Cause back in October my heart was racing for no reason and it kept skipping beats which hurt like hell. So i went to the hospital to get it checked out and it turns out that i have a Sinus Tachycardia.

When i got to the hospital my bpm was 160 and it should only be between 70 and 90 bpm. " bpm = beats per minute". I was on the verge of cardiac arrest if they didn't get my heart rate down quickly.

Btw i am only 29.

Hmmm no they didn't say it was beating fast. When it starts skipping it starts to race. I'm really tiny and my resting heart rate is always over 100. I'll be watching for it. Of course, like i said, now that I have a monitor and we're running tests, its not doing anything lol

I now have to take heart medication to keep it regular. If the medication doesn't help or work i am going to have open heart surgery to have a pace maker put in so it can shock my heart when it starts to beat to fast..... :(

Ah such a long way to go but I'm sure it'll go by fast :)

Aw that's adorable. Df and I had our first 9 months ago lol, once, while I was pregnant, he had gotten drunk (he neeeever drinks lol he's a lightweight) and we were cuddling.. He was seconds from knocking out when he held my tummy and said he was so excited to be having a son.. That he loved him so much already. He got teary eyed and fell asleep lol!

Lol cool :)



No mine was when I was younger, a teenager. I was having a lot of weird symptoms heart palpitations being one. I never did find out why and it eventually stopped.



Aside from your heart, hows your pregnancy going? :)

Awesome :-) almost 13 weeks. Its my 2nd but SOs first and he is like going nuts. Always all over my belly. We can feel where the baby is, but can't feel it move yet. I'm so excited to see his face the first time he can feel it :-)

I'm so tired and this seriously cracked me up! I just got done giggling up a storm over another post. Geeze!

OP I hope you start feeling better, soon!

What a wiener! They always think they are sooooo funny. 

I hope your heart starts cooperating. Palpitations can be scary.
