Normal fetal heartrate

I had two seizures that lasted a few minutes each and went to the ER for them. When they used the fetal doppler my little guys heartrate was 210. My question is what can this do? Can it cause harm? Also, since the doctors haven't seen the seizures they are not diagnosing them as seizures. I have no way to control these and i am worried about my baby. What would you do if you were in this situation? I do not have pre eclamsia

Just try to take it easy. I would think your doctors would be concerned about the heartrate being so high. Maybe get a second opinion.

I would get a 2nd opinion... I hay myclonic seizures but mine only last a few seconds and are usually increased in frequency by stress... my doc has had me conntact their office every time I have one because I have had 2 in the past that lasted a few min but the hospital could find no trace of what caused them. id let ur doc know about them and find out what they wanna do.

I will definitely do that. I've had so many lately and they are like grandmal seizures from what  my family who have witnessed them say.

I would def get a second opinion
