when i was 25ish weeks pregnant my sons heart beat was a bit irregular. the dr wanted to check it again in a couple days. when we went back to check it, his hb was appx 240bpm- double what a normal heart beat should have been. we spent 2 and a half weeks at the hospital until his heart converted back to normal. he was very close to the beginning stages of heart failure. once i was discharged from the hosp, i had to go to high risk drs twice a week to get his heart monitored. then at 35 weeks, they induced me and i had a big healthy baby boy with no heart problems. but the pediatric cardiologist instructed me to give him a med for SVT 2x daily for a year.
my fear is that after he stops taking this medication, what if his SVT comes back and how would i notice it?
and if anyone elses baby had or has SVT, would you share your story?
