Well, had to go to the cardiologist today.  I am not a happy camper, but it could have been worse.  For anyone who knows me I have 3 fears...clowns, needles, and heights (not going up but having to come back down...)
They had to draw 7 vials of blood and I passed out.  Not happy.

I have to go back next week for an echo cardio-graph.  I hope it comes back ok.  They did an EKG today and the doctor was puzzled.  In 45 seconds my heart went from 108, 80, 45, 100, 102, 85 beats per minute.  He said that is not normal, and that was just sitting on the table, not moving or doing anything but breathing.

I also have to wear a heart monitor on my wrist for at least 2 weeks when it comes in.  Then in a week and a half i have a 3 hour doctor visit to get tested for diabetes (gestational but still not excited).  At least my hypertension test came back negative.  Trying to stay positive.  

Baby is happy and healthy.  He's bigger than he should be at this time so I am thinking that he will be a middle to late August baby instead of September.  We will see.
