Hi,

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that there are many causes of fast heart rate like anxiety, physical activity, anaemia, thyroid gland dysfunction, electrolyte imbalances or any possible cardiomyopathy.

For this reason, I would recommend performing some blood lab tests to investigate for these possible causes and a new cardiac ultrasound before delivery, in order to be sure that everything is going to be OK.
I would be glad to review all your test reports for a second professional opinion.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka,
Cardiologist
