  • Consult your doctor. They may want to induce early so that your health isnt compromised. Good Luck!

  • I am not really sure about that. But when you first find that you are pregnant you might have heart palpitations. I did and a friend of mine did also. I think that it is because it is working more on your body. Don't quote me on that though. If you are really worried then ask your doctor. Good luck.

  • OMG I thought I was the only one that had that! When I was pregnant I had a really bad episode like that and I thought I was having a heart attack so I called my OB. They had me come in and get put on a heart monitor and go through all of these tests. Anyway, I ended up having pre-clampsia develop overnight!  My blood pressure was through the roof and I had either sugar, or protein in my urine.  (I don't remember which one)  I was 35 weeks along and it was bad enough they were going to induce me.  My water ended up breaking on it's own 2 days later thank God.  Check it out with your doctor for sure!
