    I thought I'd gotton rid of these in the early second tri, now they are really bad. This mornings run has been constant since half 8 boo. Just makes me feel yucky faint and breathless.

    Been having them since Thu/Fri. I've given in and asked for the Dr to call me today. Even though I know there's nothing they can do and its just pregnancy! Just wasting their time but it shuts my husband up at least!

    Will do :) I could understand if I was at work etc but I'm at home, doing nothing! Literally this morning I'm just sat on my bed leaning on the pillows to try and rest to get them to bugger off!

    But give me palpitations over sickness any day. I cannot deal with nausea at all!!!

    I've been suffering with them and the consultant in antenatal referred me to the cardiologist. I;ve had 2 24 hour heart monitors and 2 heart scans. I'm due back to see him next week. I didnt really want to go for the second one's because he has said there isnt much they can do and I didnt want to waste their time.

    But when I spoke to my mw at my last appointment they can be brought on by low iron levels so its best to get checked out.

    Its awful isnt it, I hope the go away for you soon enough xxx

    Well chest and heart sound fine, had some more bloods done, ten weeks ago my HB was only 103 so I'm really hoping its not dropped below 100 :-( that will be all of my lovely labour plans out of the window!

    I've been wanted that palpitations lasting over half an hour need to be stopped with beta blockers, as they can be a problem. All depends on what they diagnose I suppose, as I had a pre existing condition that pregnancy seems to exacerbate.

    Hope it's all well though, they're usually just irritating!!! Xxx
