Have loud heart beats at night. Its not fast. Reason?

Quite often I wake up in the middle of the night and when I go to sleep I notice I can hear my heart beating very loudly almost like it is beating through my ears. It is steady and not going real fast, just normal I think. Last night, it sounded and I think I felt it beating hard but not fast again in my chest . What is this? I don t feel panicked, so I am not sure what is going on.
