Hey all im 9+2 with my first baby and caught the dreaded cold from bf. I am full of snot (sorry) and coughing, headache, dizziness etc..
Today i noticed i have heart palpitations and feels like my heart is racing. Checked my pulse and the highest was 108bpm but now its 98bpm.
Should i contact my doctor or just ride it out?

Contact your doctor if you have a high temperature (and take some paracetamol immediately to bring it down) or any difficulty breathing.

Certain things are important to deal with in pregnancy where normally we'd never dream of going to to doctors with a cold.

Heart palpitations are a normal part of pregnancy. I can't remember when mine started.

I don't know enough about pulse to know whether 98bpm is a concern.
