I can not even guess as to what your problem could be, yet I can say that it sounds
as if an echocardiogram is the perfect next step. This will tell your doctor
about the different valves, the flow of blood through the heart and much more. At the
very least it will help your cardiologist to better understand the murmur s/he hears on
the physical exam. Do not fret until all the testing is done, especially because
pregnant women are very likely to develop murmurs of pregnancy that are benign as well as
develop arrhythmias that most often need no specific treatment. Before you take any medications
during pregnancy, ask the doctor who prescribes them the potential risks to your fetus/baby if they
exist, and then discuss the drug with your OB/GYN physician before starting.
I hope this has been somewhat helpful, if you have any further questions, say after the results of the
echocardiogram, then please feel free to write back. Good Luck.
