  • It was a palpitation. They're sometimes a cause for concern, but often not. They can be caused by many things...medications, supplements, caffeine and other stimulants, stress, and other things. I've had them before when I had too much caffeine. However, if they persist or worsen, I'd go to the doctor. There are heart related problems that sometimes cause them, so it's better to be safe than sorry. I wouldn't worry too much, though, they're fairly common. :)

  • I know I have a heart murmur and mine does that but I agree with LovingSAHMommy
