Anxiety and stress are causing it even more. The more you focus the worse it will get. I hope you’ve had a checkup for it. If so and all was good try to trust in your doctors. They should know though. Then you must coexist with the anxiety. For me anxiety is my normal. I just do what I do and try my best to ignore it. Of course some is worse than others. Focusing on it is the worst thing to do Communication with your doctor is good Try to distract yourself. Exercise, coloring, singing etc. Anything to refocus your mind

I’m sorry to hear about the pregnancy. Much love to you. ❤️

Hi Hollie

I us d to get palpitations all the time, especially in my late teens and twenties. It’s quite common. My fiancé gets them at times during or around her time of the month, not sure if that sounds like something you can relate to.

They actually used to spark off an anxiety attack for me...I would gasp for breath thinking that my heart had stopped!

My advice for what it’s worth is to cut down on caffeine (coffee and tea) and sugary carbs for a few days and see if it calms down.

But honestly, if you’ve been checked out it really is nothing to worry about.

Increased blood flow and hormones is what my OB told me. Was a nightmare in my four pregnancies. I would see a cardiologist throughout your pregnancy. I ended up in A Fib every pregnancy needing cardioversion. Mine got so much better after deliveries. Rest was the only thing that helped. Even standing causes them. You are in my prayers.

Keep in mind I was seen at major hospitals by head of departments because mine were so rare...and still sent home! Just an electrical thing.

Me too I am decaffeinated. Still get them tired of getting checked . They said I am fine and so are you

Hi

So if you drink no caffeine it's probably just a thing that your body is going through, like I said, what I discovered when I had them over a long period when I was younger was that it's quite common.

It's a nasty feeling, I know, It feels like sometimes it makes a big thud, you think it's your heart actually stopping or has stopped, it makes you gasp for breath, it makes you feel anxious. Right?

My heart used to do this I was put on beater blockers a week ago and I've had no heart racing or any other to do with my heart ask your doctor.
