Irregular heartbeat and pregnancy complications

My mother was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat caused by PVC. She takes meds to keep her heartbeat normal. I also have an irregular heartbeat but it has never been formally diagnosed. I just found out that I'm pregnant. What sort of complications could arise from an untreated irregular heartbeat, and can it cause a miscarriage?

My sister had that while pregnant and never had a problem went on to have 5 kids

You need to see a cardio dr so he can tell you what kind of paps your having PVC/pacs

I am sure baby dr will also inform you what to do

Congrats on baby
