Chest Pain...Is it a 911?

I'm 23 and 20 weeks pregnant. Yesterday i began feeling very sharp and sudden stabbing pain in my left chest. Also a heavy pressure in the center with increased pain when i swallow.  

It's like i swallowed something and it's stuck kind of pain but it's gone on for two days.

i Have gradual nausiea and such but just point that towards the pregnancy...please help me.

That's a tough one, but it doesn't sound typical of cardiac pain.  Unfortunately not everybody has typical pain.  But I would call your Ob-Gyn's office and run it by them first because there can be so many weird pains during pregnancy.  Unless you are at high risk for cardiac disease for some reason, and then I'd call 911.

If you are short of breath or the pain is so bad you cannot speak, go to the ER. If the pain travels to your arm or toward your back, go to the ER.  I am not a doctor, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is heartburn, or acid reflux.  It can be so bad it feels like a heart attack.  

Does your OB have a number you can call during off hours?  Sometimes insurance companies have a "nurse line" where you can call and talk about your symptoms and they help you figure out if it is serious enough for urgent care or the ER.
