Racing heart

So I am just wondering if anyone has had or is having this happen. I notice if I lay down too long and especially at night my heart starts racing. Almost like an anxiety attack but it is just my heart. Last night we went to bed early as we were all up early and really tired. Well I woke up at 11:45 soaked with sweat and my heart felt like I was jumping out of my chest. I know from past experience I have dreams based in what is happening around me or in me. So of course I was dreaming I was in a bank that was getting robbed. But when I woke up I put my hand on my chest and it was pounding so hard I could feel it. Does this heart racing happen to anyone else? Do you know if it is normal? I want to ask the doctor but I don't go to the OB till feb. 4!
