  • I had heart palpitations early in this pregnancy & my friend who is pregnant was also having them.  I asked my doctor about it & he said since my BP was normal, it was most likely just my body getting used to all the changes.  It went away after the early second trimester for me & didn't happen nearly enough for me to worry.

  • i felt like this all the time with my first, i hated it my doc said its beacuse your heart is working over time to supply blood to your growing baby, i would talk to your doctor any time your concerned about you or your baby. GL

  • Sometimes it's normal but let the dr listen to your heart to rule out any problems.
