Fetal Electrocardiogram? - Nervous
Has anyone ever had one of these? Have you had it done or known anyone who has? I am extremely nervous about it.... It's done at 19 wks on top of your Anatomy scan and is usually done at a hospital. We are opting into it because my Father's side of the family has a heart and chest deformation. Enlarged Hearts and indented chest bones it's only been on the males. So my great grandfather, father, and my brother. It's not fatal, but it does possibly require some pretty major surgery around 15 years of age, which entails bars in his/her chest to make more space for the heart. We are just wanting to be prepared for the worst if it happens. With my son I did not know about the option to do one while pregnant and he had to be sedated at 6 months for a similar procedure.
I don't know if I am more nervous for the results or for the test itself. Our ultrasound is not until the 27th. Someone please tell me that I am being an overly nervous mom and nothings going to go wrong :/
