On a good note, the placenta has moved up, which is great. There's still the dark spot on the placenta and the OB thinks it's what they call a placental lake. She's not worried about it because I haven't been having any bleeding or contractions and because baby is doing well. My OB wants me to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours because I've been having heart palpitations every day. I can be lying on the couch watching TV and my heart just begins to race. She wants to make sure it's just the pregnancy hormones causing the palpitations and not an underlying condition that's just appearing now. I go back in 4 weeks for another growth ultrasound and appointment.
