My new RE wants me to have a heart test, has anyone heard of this? Is it like a treadmill test? I don't jog anymore. I'm worried I might not pass it!

I think after 45 you have to do one plus letter from your regular dr (family practitioner) that you are healthy enough to carry a pregnancy.

It is standard in most clinics to have an EKG(Cardiogram).If that is not normal, they may send you for additional tests (echo and some blood work).

I hope its a simple test, because I hate treadmills.
