Is this normal?

Im 22 weeks pregnant and every day for the past couple weeks i'll just be sitting at home and i don't know if my heart is speeding up or slowing down but for that moment i feel like i can't catch my breath. And right now im sick to my stomach but hungry but my head feels fuzzy.

  • normal... just make sure you are eating and staying hydrated !!! don't go from sitting to standing in a hurry, that can make thing worse.

  • sometimes that happens to me and its called palpatations like where your heart starts to beat a little differently for a second. they told me its harmless but you should still get checked.

  • drink lots of water 8 glasses a day, your heart will beat faster sometimes your body is pumping lots more blood since theres a baby in there
