My heart skipped beat for five minutes once. But other than that I didn't experience that.
I'm just wondering if I should call and ask the doctors office or what. I never once called with my first pregnancy and haven't with this one either, so they'll know I'm kinda worried. Heart disease is the number one killer in my family, my great grandparents, my grandparents, and aunts and uncles all suffered heart disease. So my mom and siblings and I are all just waiting for the day we get diagnosed :/ it's very strong in our genetics. I know my sister had heart palpitations once but hers were never accompanied by lightheatedness.
I did call the labor and delivery at my hospital, they said to go into urgent care tomorrow since heart disease is very much in the bloodline. If it happens more than one more time, they said to leave work and get to the ER quickly so they can at least check it out.
Its most likely low blood pressure my doctor told me when that happens to eat some lean meat and drink water and sit down and rest
Hope all goes well for you and baby
Thank you! Didn't mean to fuss, it just scared me. And I never get scared.
Its okay I called my doctor the other day for the same reason how many weeks are u
It just scared me because my entire family has gone to heart disease. Honestly, my grandpa died in '98 of a heart attack and my grandma died in August of a heart attack. My mom has heart problems and my dad and his side of the family has heart murmurs. It's a matter of time before we're diagnosed. I haven't had anymore but my heart is racing and I feel flushed, I can feel my heart beating hard. I think I will pay the doctor a visit tomorrow.
I get pains every now and then from my heart, but I was born with a heart murmur and a hole in my heart. (That healed with time though) so I've never really payed attention to if I have a flutter. But I heard somewhere that they are pretty normal.
