    Hello! I hope everyone is doing well? I just wanted to ask if anyone else has had heart palpitations during pregnancy? I'm 20 weeks and have been having some today for the first time - feels like my heart is beating really hard and sporadically! :-( I notice it more when i am sitting down.....Its seems to come and go. Wanted to know if its something i should be worried about...thanks in advance for replies! xx

    Yes I've also had this, it's only happened twice but both times I just sat still and waited and after a minute or so it went and I felt fine and from whati gather it is quite normal in pregnancy. If it is happening a lot may be worth mentioning to your doctor or MW xx

    Probably worth checking that your iron levels are ok. I had this when I was anaemic once. I've been taking pregnancy vitamins all the way through so far, especially seeing as I don't eat red meat or chicken. xxx

    I had this a while ago my mw said its just due to extra blood flow during pregnancy and not to worry. I get them a bit worse as I am also anaemic due to alpha thalassemia x
