Hi there DD, yeh i got that at about the same point in pregnancy as you are. They stopped after a few weeks. Just another one of those odd pregnancy things I guess!! Its worth mentioning to your GP or MW though to ask them to have a quick heart check. Also, make sure you get checked over if you have any breathing difficulty, chest pain or faintness or passing out with the palpitations. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy x

Hi dibleydoughnut!

Yep me too, I had that from 20 weeks for about 15 weeks, I actually found it very scary as at times it just felt like my heart was going to stop! Strangely it got worse everytime i got a cold too, probably something to do with it working harder? It also took my breath away a few times.I went to the GP to get it checked and he listened to my heart and said it was fine and that the heart has to work a lot harder to pump the blood around. He did check me for anemia too though as apparently it can be a sign of that. I have had them a couple of times after giving birth but i developed anemia after the birth and due to a major haemorage. A quick check with your GP should put your mind at rest.
