    Hi Ladies

    I was wondering whether any of you have a pre-existing heart condition going into your pregnancy.

    I have recently (before becoming pregnant) been diagnosed with paroxysmal atrial fibrilation and the medication I have been told to take by the cardiologist is what they call 'pill in the pocket' and it's flecainide.

    Unfortunately, there are not many tests run on this drug in pregnant women, for obvious reasons.

    So really, I am just trying to find out other women's experiences with heart medications and drugs in pregnancy.

    Thanks,
    F :) x
