Pregnant and Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM)
Your doctors must be concerned about Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM).
If true, PPCM puts not only you, but also your baby at risk, and you both need to be monitored through this period that may extend beyond your pregnancy.
When it comes to treatment, cardiologists are much better at judging your cardiac risks than your OBs, and I would trust their judgment. However, you just started therapy and I would hold off making a final decision till you are due (get cardiac ECHOs).
Hope this helps,
