Oh, the first thing in the morning skips! I always seem to have one or two before breakfast, although typically not when I am still in bed. They can make it challenging to have a decent morning, can't they. Do they continue on through the day for you, or is it only a break of dawn thing?
From what I have read it certainly seems as if pregnancy can cause an increase. Changes in the blood, differing pressures against the heart and all that.
Pregnancy definetely increases palpitations. Mine actually started fore the first time 3 months ago 1 week after I found out I was pregnant. they have not stopped since. I'mhoping they go away after pregnancy!
