Yes.: You have a 70-90% chance of the pregnancy continuing. Congrats! Stay positive, be happy! Worry helps nothing and changes the chemicals in the body, so does being positive and happy.

Fetal Heart Sounds: The baby has a heart beat at 6 weeks. By 10-12 weeks the heart tones can be heard in the office. The most common reason for not hearing the heart tones by 12 weeks is that the dates are off. If the fetal heart tones are not audible in the office at 10-12 weeks an ultrasound will usually be ordered to make sure the due date is correct and to see the heart beat. ...Read more

At my first doctors apt I heard my baby's heart beat with a Doppler in my lower abdomen does that mean I'm about 10 weeks pregnant?

Testing, such as an ECG, overnight monitor, and blood work will likely be helpful in tracking this down. In the meantime. Decrease or eliminate caffeine, and avoid stress. ...Read more

Maybe: These are some real physical symptoms that may be brought on due to your body's reaction to anxiety. Your Dr can give Rx's for the GERD and might also offer Rx for anxiety - I'd urge you to also add some CBT therapy to optimize the meds and learn ways to avoid, reduce and manage it.

ENT said scope in office for nose/throat needs lidocaine/decongestant. Scared decongestant will bother my irregular heartbeat, can perform without?

Talk to ENT: I can understand your concern. The decongestant is to reduce tissues inside the nose to help reduce complications from the scope BUT your concerns have merit. Contact the ENT and present your concern and your medical history to see if he still feels this is the right procedure for you.

Last night when I was trying to sleep, suddenly my heartbeat raced, throat dried and left arm was numb. My right thumb twitches and numbs sometimes?

Happens to anyone: A rapid heart rate can happen to anyone when going to sleep or waking up. Occurs because the beat from the top chamber does not go through the stop signals to lower chambers of the heart. This can be brought on by not enough sleep, too much caffeine, or alcohol. If you avoid these items usually this will only happen occasionally. If more see physician. The thumb is from over use. ...Read more
