    Might be a portable monitor. If she has any irregularities they could be monitoring her. I had one for a week once. Just had to go about my normal activities and it was all recorded down for the docs to look at after a week. X

    Yep, a friend of mine had the same thing. She had heart surgery when she was a baby, so at some point in her pregnancy (can't remember what stage), she had to wear a monitor too.

    I've been having issues with my blood pressure dropping and almost passing out. When I told my doctor she said if it continues she may have me monitored with an EKG...maybe thats how they do it?
