I have always had extremely random heart palpitations/flutters to the point that cardiac doctors could not catch it on any kind of heart monitoring. I have thyroid issues, am anemic, and the heart palpitations/flutters have gotten to the point they really bother me. I am short of breath a lot, heart races way too easy, I feel weak a lot. Are there any other moms who have experienced the same during their pregnancy?

I have had heart palpitations my entire life. Like you in pregnancy I felt them more, sometimes taking my breath away. I think it is important to always relay symptoms to your doctor so they can monitor you closely. Don't let yourself get stressed about it. My mom has had heart palpitations her entire life and she is going on 50 and very healthy! She has just learned to limit certain activities that trigger hers.

I've only experienced heart palpitations in the earlier stages of pregnancy after having caffeine

I wouod definitely speak with your baby doc about this. Sometimes underlying diseases or health concerns are brought to light during pregnancies. It may be a blessing in disguise.

I think that it is important to be seen by your OBGYN like Karisa did and to be possibly evaluated by a cardiac specialist...just to be safe!

I had some similar experiences as well with my first child. I eventually reached out to my OBGYN and was referred to a cardiology doctor. They ended up running a few tests on me and everything was fine. I do have a diagnosis of heart murmurs but it did not hurt me nor my baby. I hope you feel better soon! I know how scary these feelings can be, but know you are not alone!

So my pulse did increase during the 2nd trimester to the point of me noticing it and my midwife said it was normal and that would happen. I also am currently experiencing shortness of breath within the last couple of weeks and I am 27 weeks all of which was deemed normal by midwife. However everyone is different and if you are worried you should talk to your obgyn/midwife
