Hi, 21wks + 6 and on and off for the last two days I've been hearing my heartbeat in my ear, was exceptionally loud last night. Midwife not worried when I called, but I still am. Seems to coincide with exhertion.
Feel very tired and slightly nauseous today but then I am pregnant.
Thank you everyone! I nipped into town, as docs were booked up, and a pharmacist at the chemist took my blood pressure. It was fine, heart beat slightly up but then I was anxious. Going back on fri for her to check again and for my flu jab. Bizarre, it was really loud last night - a pregnancy is a mystery 🙄
Will have a look at my eyes later for any anemia signs, am feeling really wiped out so quite possible.
When you're pregnant, your blood volume increases by an extraordinary amount. The heart pumps harder as a result, and your heartbeat can feel stronger. It's very normal, but if you're worried see your gp or midwife.
