I had a chest xray done 2 weeks ago and doc said I have increased markings. What does this mean? About me - I'm 33 years old, 39 weeks pregnant. During my first trimester they had diagnosed me with Asthma and I was also sick with Pneumonia, as a result was admitted into the hospital at 12 weeks pregnant where they also performed a bronchoscopy. I recovered well was well until about 28 weeks where I was sent to cardiologist and there they said I had intermittent sinus tachycardia. My resting heart rate is 100-110 and increases up to 180 intermittently. The 2D scan also showed a possible hole in the heart and reverse blood flow. Since the 2D scan is inconclusive they have to do a 3D scan after pregnancy to confirm the hole in the heart. With this being said I feel fine and have felt fine with the exception of an increased heart rate occasionally. I am not sick, nor have a cough, cold etc. What does increased markings mean?
