My SO keeps calling me Robo Cop...
January 19, 2013 at 5:01 AM
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"

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

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

    Ugh, my daughter had to wear one of those things for 24 hours and then it would automatically beep and turn itself off.  So she was miserable with it for 24 hours, it beeped and we took it off.  But then when we turned it back into the doctor's office they called us saying it only recorded for 8 hours, so it didn't really do any good.  Gah!  So I never trust that those things aren't going to blink out on you, lol.  I hope they find what they need and you don't have to wear it for longer.

    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? :)

    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.
