Palpitations (heart fluttering) during pregnancy is very common. It is thought to be related to hormones. It is worth talking to your doctor about. Let them decide if additional tests are necessary. It is very common though.
I, too, had that when I was pregnant 2 years ago. They found I had a couple of runs of VT while pregnant. I was told by numerous doctors that this is quite common when women are pregnant. However, you have kids to take care of so I would suggest at least having it looked at. Better to be safe than sorry. Good luck and take care,
Go see a cardologist if you can. I had the same problem although its very rare but i had a heart attack because they told me i was fine. I don't want to scare you but all you need to do is make an appointment. Then you know for sure. I am only 23 and was 22 when it happened. I had migranes (migraines) at the begining of my prengancy do you have headaches? Please keep me posted. I have yet to encounter someone who had this problem, although i hope that you don't. Like i said before just go to the doctors and hold nothing back.
