Heart palpitations at 15wk

Just turned 15wk yesterday and I have been noticing for the past 3 weeks I get these weird heart palpitations where it feels like a chug chug type of beat. They are not constant and I don't get them everyday but was wondering if anyone had felt their heart beat "chug" a little. It's a little hard to explain but I guess I could best describe it with that "chug chug" feeling that the car gets when it's about to run out of gas. I have an appt with my dr soon and I'm going to bring it up and see what it could be...crossing fingers it's "normal".


-Side note : I just read that in this week's "overview" on my phone app that my heart has been working harder and producing more oxygen and blood flow to the baby.

 Yep--the extra blood flow can be part cause of it.  I had them a lot a few pregnancies.  I just rested and took deep breaths when they started.  But, I would still bring it up with your doctor to make sure everything is truley ok!
