I am 33 weeks pregnant with #2 (another boy) and he was just diagnosed with fetal PAC. It’s has to do with his heart, basically he has an irregular regular heart beat. He should be fine in a very small percentage it can stay and become serious after birth but for the most part it goes away at least by the time he’s a month old. I am just wondering if anyone else’s child had this problem. Everything says it’s “very common” but from the people I’ve told no-one has ever heard of it. If your child did have this were they ok, did it go away?
I’m just a little scared because my first pregnancy went just fine and everything was fine with this one until now.

2beinsnow, I am not acquainted with this diagnosis.
Will give you a bump, so that maybe another friend can answer your question.
While I can’t answer you question,
did say a prayer for you and baby boy!
All the best in the coming weeks.December 1, 2007 at 2:02 am #956704
Hi this is my first post and I also have a baby with PAC. At 19 weeks my midwife detected an irregular heartbeat in which after she scheduled us an appt at a maternal fetal medicine specialist. Luckily the ultrasound showed no abnormalities in the heart but did detect the PAC. At 24 weeks we now have to see our midwife every week to monitor the heartrate with doppler, and was informed that at 32 weeks we would be taking a NST (non stress test) every visit until delivery. As I understand the biggest problem with PAC can be tachycardia (heartrate above 160), so if that would occur they would ask that we go back to the maternal fetal medicine specialist to be put on a heart medicine possibly digitalis to control the heartrate. By the way we are having our 3rd girl To tell you the truth I am not really concerned about this as the heart itself has no abnormalities. I hope that our experience helps to ease some concerns for you and your family.
you will be in my thoughts Please give updates as they occur.February 19, 2009 at 4:30 am #1025681
