Maternal palpitations are common. It's due to the increased blood volume which peaks at 28 to 32 weeks, so you're on track. The stroke volume of the heart increases and progesterone
can cause the heartbeat to be irregular at times. If you have a history of cardiac problems you need to be seen by a doctor right away. You've mentioned anxiety
. If you also experience dizziness
and/or shortness of breath
, you need to be seen right away. For most women, palps are normal. There must be an emergency number or answering service that can contact your doctor if necessary. I've never heard of an OB who couldn't be contacted. Go ahead and let your doctor know about this and how it's affecting you.
DO NOT take anything without first consulting your doctor. That includes the vitamin B6 suggested to you.
