I don't have cardiomyopathy, but its possible yours is also just a congenital thing. I do have plenty of heart issues when I'm pregnant. When I have been to a cardiologist with almost every pregnancy. I declined going with DS2 though since I felt fine. I found when PG I have a mitral valve regurg which isn't too serious since it goes away when not PG. I too get lots of palpitations when PG and sometimes without PG. Caffiene can cause them, stress, dehydration... You could also just be more sensitive to the extra beats your heart is throwing (I know I am).

I had preterm labor with DS1 and I was put on procardia. I also had a lot of chest pain with that pregnancy and the procardia eased and almost eliminated the chest pain for me. Not saying that you will need procardia or any medication at all, but just thought that was interesting and would throw it out there for interest value only.
