    When you have a Csection, do they hook you up to one of those heart monitors?

    I have this fear of having a heart attack and because I get palpitations when Im extremely anxious or ate up about something, Im worrying drs will think Im suffering from a major heart problem.

    All it takes for me is to get wound up and my hearts all over the place, like for example, earlier today stressing about getting my built in oven fixed- palpitations started. Had them 20 mins.


    The reason I ask is because Im wanting an elective but now Im scared that if I have one the drs will think because I suffer from palps that im having a heart attack or something and keep me in for test after test.....

    You will have opportunity to make them aware that you suffer from palpatations before, and the docters will be able to tell the difference between what are palpatations and signs of having a heart attack. Lots of people suffer from palpatations when stressed its completely normal and not dangerous.

    Try not to worry about it, they are professionals and they will look after you x

    I wouldn't worry they are thinking your having a heart attack. I should imagine its normal to be pretty stressed out when having a c-section-they will have seen so many women with nerves before.

    hi jeanine wen i was hooked up to a heart monitor my heart was racing like wild fire beacuse i was so scared of wot the reading will be, the doctor looked at my results and said "o dear you are worked up,your pulse is high" lol i explained and he was fine then , they do definatley kno the differencr because he told me i had no signs of having a heart attack!

    plus if u were having a heart attack you pulse would be weak not racing :thumbup:
