I just got back from the doctor and due to some odd heart palpitations I've been strapped with this heart monitor for four weeks. I have two pads on my chest and when I feel an irregularity I push the red button. It records what is going on with my heart. Then after thirty seconds I call this 888 number and playback the sounds the monitor makes over the phone and it faxes the info over to my doctor. I just went to the doctor thinking he would tell me to write down when the palpitations happen, but after only 45 minutes I had blood work done and I was strapped with this machine. Although I'm a little nervous about people noticing the Blackberry sized monitor clipped on my hip I'm so impressed with the speed and concern of my new doctor. 

Pray and think good thoughts about my little heart.

Thinking good thoughts for you! I had to wear one for a little while when I was pregnant & lucky for me all was well so I wish the best & same for you.
And p.s. on the having children...even though sometimes it's hard, it is absolutely 100% worth it.

Thanks for all of the support ladies. I feel "fine" but having this thing on me makes me nervous and I'm clutching my heart all day thinking its racing and second guessing myself.
