Abnormal Heart Rhythm When 8 Weeks Pregnant?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia in the fetus, can occur due to various things, and so far not all conditions have an explanation. Some cases are caused by the consumption of caffeine found in coffee, abnormalities in heart structure, one of the normal phases of heart development, and the effect of ultrasound examination.
What you need to know now is that various studies show that the majority of arrhythmias do not endanger the lives of the fetus. This condition is rare, and most will heal by itself as the fetus gets older. In very rare conditions, arrhythmias can survive, become more severe and the baby can be born with a heart condition. But this condition is still unknown.
So you don't need to worry first, because this is still under normal circumstances and many studies have proven it. All you need to do now is take care of your womb by avoiding cigarette smoke, coffee, overwork, stress, lack of sleep, eating vegetables and fruits, consuming folic acid, and regularly checking your condition with your obstetrician. Always remind your obstetrician at each check that your fetus has a history of irregular heartbeats. Your doctor will know later when it needs treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
