If you've read my blog for any length of time, you might remember that I had heart problems when #7 was born (thus the reason there won't be a #8). I wore a heart monitor for a month at that point, but there were no problems at all. I'd actually had the same problems during three other pregnancies but they were much, much worse with #7. Those are the only issues my heart has ever had. NO, I'm NOT PREGNANT.
I called and spoke with an advice nurse this morning. I asked her to just tell me it was all in my head. She asked if I was under any unusual stress. HaHa! She also mentioned how alcohol, caffeine, illicit drugs, etc. could cause such things. I told her I was LDS, and I didn't have a problem with any of these this--except I did have a really good chocolate bar last night. I'd like to mention--REALLY GOOD. Good enough to cause heart issues? She told me she was LDS too. Funny how this brings an instant bond. She also told me that she would message my doctor's office but that it was probably caused by stress.
So, for now, I'm laying low. No pain, no real problems, just something strange. I can't even put my finger on it. I'm hoping a little rest'll bring it all back to normal.
