Anyone else having heart palpitations? I am noticing it more and more. I think it is also related to the BH contractions. And then I find myself short of breath and feeling woozy. It's not fun. Especially at work. The nurses here made me lay down in a room for half an hour today because they could see that I was struggling.
Yes. I was getting them more and more often and of greater intensity, and then my dr found I was anemic and put me on iron supplements. Any possibility you could be low on iron?
I hope they get better soon!
This is SO weird because I was literally typing this same topic last night but I couldn't figure out how to word it so I just gave up. It's like your heart is POUNDING and almost hard to breathe but not severe? It seems to happen to me like right before a contraction, especially when I'm laying down. I was scared at first but I googled it and it seems quite common.
You pretty much got the description of how it feels for me right on, IDK why I was having such a hard time putting what it felt like into words
Yes. I get them when not pregnant though because of my heart condition. Mine are very severe in pregnancy though. I would mention it to your doctor, because they can be serious and should be monitored closely.
Thanks so much to Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy
