Just wanted to see if this happened to others. My heart races a lot during the day! Especially after I've ate but can happen whenever. When I'm trying to sleep it is so loud and pounding! Does this sound familiar??

I got that in my first trimester for few weeks..it went away after a few weeks & I've had my baby just 11 weeks ago.
If it doesn't it might be worth getting your doc to send you for an ECG

I had that very early on when I was about 5-6 weeks. I think it might be to do with rising progesterone levels..

Hey I have this pretty much constantly I am 9 weeks.
My ob found out I have a heart murmur the other day and I am getting an echo done in a few weeks.
If it bothers you, get it checked out although from what I have read it is normal due to the extra blood in our bodies during pregnancy

Yep, I have had this since 5 or so weeks, am now 20 and still get it a couple of times a day. In general my resting heartrate has gone up from around 65bpm to 80-85bpm, but when I check it when I get these racing episodes it's up around 90-105bpm. It probably wouldn't hurt to mention it to your healthcare provider so they can keep an eye on it.

I've had it a lot or really strong and heavy heart thumping. Started early preg about jan last year.
My daughters now 15 months and I still get it. But I've had an ECG Chest X-rays and it all seems fine.

I had it also in pregnancy and they told me it was because my heart is having to work a lot harder

I have this too and im 7 wks 1 day. I'm pretty sure I had it with my last two pregnancies also. I think it's because the blood is pumping harder therefore the heart would be too. But if your worried i would get it checked out.
