I was just wondering if anyone else was experiencing heart palpitations around 14 weeks preggers?
I have tried the Internet searching, but wanted some personal answers not case studies .. Lol
It seems for the past two days or so my heart seems to " flutter" no matter what I am doing !!
A bit frustrated !!!!! I do have a small hole in my heart, but dr.'s don't seem to be that concerned about and I have had it since birth and given birth to 4 children without this problem before???
What a worry wart I am ... Lol

I have had palpitations throughout most of my pregnancies. I have been put on the Holter monitor for it twice. It has never been an issue for me. It is something you will want to mention to your doctor, but really shouldn't be a serious thing.
Soemtimes it is caused by an imbalance of minerals. Make sure you are getting enough calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium and drink plenty of water.

I had palpitations with Eli as a result of fluid levels and bp, it can be a normal symptom while your body adjusts to changes of pregnancy! For me, it came and went between 12-16 weeks and then stopped. HTH
I had it so bad this morning for about 30 secs or so. It was actually taking my breath away with each double beat or whatever. I've had this when I wasn't pregnant too. I've never had it checked out either. It's so funny that you posted this when I had the same thing earlier today. I was so nervous.
I don't know if I have what you're talking about. I think what I am feeling is because of my bp and when I don't have enough fluids. My HR seems to be really really fast. I think it's my body getting used to the extra blood volume, I don't know. Probably a good idea to run it by your doctor. I tell my doctor EVERYTHING. haha, they probably get annoyed with my laundry list, but better safe than sorry.
OMG, I had it this morning, too! It happens to me (during or outside of pregnancy) if: I am dehydrated; I stop being as active every day as I normally am; I am not eating enough; I eat too much!
Never been too worried about it; never mentioned it to a doc because I know a hundred other people who've had this and been on those monitors and it's always benign. I know for sure that these days, I need to be drinking more and exercising more (instead of sitting like a blob on the sofa all day).
Good to know !! I do notice it more when I am inactive, that's a very good point !
You guys rock, thanks so much for answering
y'all have a much quicker response than my OB office usually
I am so new here, but it's good to know I have some Pregnant ladies that are close to my due date too!!

I've been having them and I honestly get freaked out...it usually happens when I'm really upset or when I'm laying down for bed at night. I thought it was my new medication I'm on but I'm not sure. I hope it's normal

I had them for a while in early high school; I saw a cardiologist and was diagnosed with a virus that caused PVCs (preventricular contractions; basically, one of the chambers of your heart tries to beat before it's supposed to, giving that flutter-feeling). I've had them a little bit in the past couple weeks, but it shouldn't be something that effects the pregnancy or your day-to-day life.
