Heart palpitations~

I forgot to ask my doc about this today and I dont see her again for two weeks... Have any of you experienced this during pregnancy?
It feels like my heart skips a beat and I lose my breath, happens like 2 or 3 times a day...

  • I didnt have the skipping a beat but sometimes I would just be sitting and watching TV and my heart would start racing. Doctor told me it was normal. I would still call the doc and just check though.

  • i have it now while being pregnant an i also had it before being pregnant. they say it can be a cause for pre-term labor? i have no idea if thats true! but you can always call your dr's office an theyll get back to you with an answer! :)

    but i can say when it happens try an take a couple deep breaths an drink water sorta calms you down when its done palpitating. and just try an stay relaxed. good luck!

  • I experienced this (during my 2nd trimester mostly) and it scared me to death so I went to the ER. It turned out that I was dehydrated. If you are like me and sick often, this could be the answer. You should contact your doctor either way...it's ALWAYS better safe than sorry.
