Hi,

Based on what you say, you probably need to get your thyroid thoroughly checked out to make sure thats not the root cause. Its common to have thyroid issues post pregnancy, it can be a chronic issue without women knowing for years.  Before getting pregnant you probably need to see your OB and talk to them about risks and have them do some basic testing that is relevant to pre pregnancy health.

Gl, I hope you ultimately have a happy and healthy pregnancy as you hope.

I've had them since I was 16 and I've gone through two pregnancies successfully.  During both pregnancies, they increased very early, subsided, returned again toward the 6th month, then subsided within a couple of weeks to return again shortly after delivery.  The hormonal changes of pregnancy will definitely make an impact, maybe it will make them worse or maybe it will make them vanish.  Either way, PVCs and PACs do not complicate a pregnancy, and a pregnancy does not make them more dangerous.

Don't let these things stop you.  Pregnancy is a joy and the result is even better :)
