Thanks for asking for me Heaven! No, I didn't test this morning. I couldn't go get a test. Mu hubby was brought the the hospital by ambulance on tuesday morning. He was gettig ready to leave for work and all of a sudden he was having chest pains, turned white as a sheet, was sweating profusely and was out of breath...and he's only 27! The paramedics told me that his heart rate was 170, the normal is around 80-110 they told me. They had to give him nitro at the hospital to slow his heart down. They told us that if I wouldn't have called 911, he would have suffered permanent damage to his heart. It was a scary experience. When my kids (ages 4 and 5) saw their father being wheeled out on the stretcher, with the oxygen tube in his nose, they lost it. My oldest went to hide under her covers and was screaming hysterically. My youngest was crying in my arms but I was able to reassure both of them. It was heartbreaking not to be able to go in the ambulance with him. I had to call a babysitter first. Then I went to the hospital. What he has is called SVT (Supraventricular tachycardia). It's a syndrome that he'll have to live with for the rest of his life. They said that if the attacks become more frequent and as intense as the one he had two days ago, he'll have to go see a cardiologist. I am sorry this got to be so long...
So, I am going tonight to get a test and will test tomorrow morning. My hubby is ok now, so I'll be able to go get a HPT tonight.
How scary! I am sure it was a traumatic experience for all of you! I am glad your husband is feeling better and I hope you get a wonderful surprise when you test! Good luck and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/angel.gif">
ok, I need to vent. Sorry girls! I was on IM with my sister-in-law (hubby's sister). She lives in NY and I am in Montreal. I called her when my hbby had his attack on tuesday and she was crying her eyes out and was very worried about him. She said that she just spoke to my hubby and told him that we should wait before we have another baby, because it would be too stressful for him. She was never happy about our decision to have a third. Her baby is the youngest (10 1/2 months) in the family right now and I think she just doesn't want to lose her "spot". I don't know what's going on. She said that we were crazy to want a third one, bla bla bla...I mean, who does she think she is to tell us what to do? I don't think that me being pregnant will cause my hubby to be more stressed out. Besides it is somehting he will have for the rest of his life, so what should we do? Never have kids again. This would be our last anyways. I am a bit frustratedm and I am sorry if I am o/t. She's only 3 years older than me. After she told me what she had said to my hubby I told her that I was already 1 week late. She responded "whatever, I guess it is good for you, but that alone will be stressful for him" and then she said "bye" and logged off. Fist of all, she has this idea that I am twisting my hubby's arm to have this baby, when it was his idea to have our third now. Not mine. She knew I wanted another one, and last year my hubby said he didn't want to have another (we were at her house on a visit when he said it so she hear him say that he didn't want anymore kids). I would have respected his wishes. But, at the end of december, he said that he really would like to have another child. That the family wouln't be complete without a third child. And, here we are now. There is no way I could have known that my hubby would have an attack, and if I am pg it happened two weeks ago. I don't know what her problem is and I really hate it when she tried to put her nose in our problems.
Last summer when we went on a visit, she said that me and my hubby had many issues and that she thinks we should never have gotten married. She also said that she knew her brother well and that it was clear that he was not happy with me! What!!!! I mean, that was only the fourth time she saw me in 7 years! Anyways, I just needed to vent, I can't believe she had the nerve to say that!
I better calm myself down now, if I am pg it's not good for the baby.
I am soooo sorry to hear what you have had to go through with his sister and your dh's attack!! Thank God you called 911 right away!!!
His sister has no right to say the things she said!!! That is totally not her spot and you have a right to be upset!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/mad.gif"> It is between you and your dh and she does not know everything that is going on and needs to keep her nose out of your business!!
I think she is jealous of you for some reason and wants to make things difficult for you! Also I think you are exactly right that she doesn't want to give up her "spot" and all the attention her little one is getting!!
I pray things get better for you and I hope to hear some good news soon!!!!! (++++++++++) <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif">
Thanks for responding. You are right, I think she is jealous and I don't know why? Anyways, I don't care anymore if she's happy or not. My hubby is excited and can't wait to find out if I am pregnant...and so am I. I am not going to let her spoil everything.
Thanks for your kind words, I"ll be taking the test early tomorrow morning and will post the results.
