    Please ask your doctor to check your thyroid with a blood test. I wouldn't agree that it's always "normal" to have an irregular heartbeat every day or that you should ignore it. Not only can regular palpitations or atrial fibrillation increase your risk of stroke, but it might be caused by a thyroid imbalance which CAN have an effect on your baby if it's not treated properly. Do you have any other unusual symptoms? Do you feel hot or sweaty? Do your hands tremble? Anything else unusual?

    I've always had this but it's definitely gotten worse in pregnancy! I told my ob who checked my heartbeat and said that I have an irregular heartbeat so feeling that 'skipping' sensation is normal, let alone with the stress on my heart through pregnancy.

    He said that as long as I don't pass out or end up in hospital with it it's quite normal. Really settled me down especially when my mum told me her heartbeat has always been irregular as well!

    Speak to your OB and ask for a 24 hour halter monitor. A lot of the time
    It'll come back normal. You're heart is working extra hard to pump all that extra blood throughout your body.
