    Has anyone else experienced palpitations during this trimester?

    I have had them twice now, both as i'm laid in bed ready to sleep, should I be concerned.

    Yes, have had them and they need to be checked out. Can be a side effect of pregnancy but never should be taken for granted. Go to doctor, but don't worry too much. I have them and had an ECG and all was fine. Whatever you do, try to stay calm and rest and don't have too much caffeine etc. as that can make them worse.
    Do you have asthma?

    I get them every day almost, they are scary but are harmless most of the time. I would advise getting yourself checked though because you can pregnancy related heart murmurs. They thought I had it but thankfully didn't. Mine happen due to stress and probably certain foods I eat.
