Re: heart misses a beat and then beats extra hard

I got that really bad after I had my daughter! If it were only 8 times in one hour I'd have been happy! Mine was coming about 2 times per minute for 4 hours straight! It happened again the next night... so I went to a doctor and it was nothing at all. (good to have it checked to make sure it's not mitro valve prolapse), but that is very very common. My mom was getting it too, she's going to be 70 and she had all kinds of heart tests and ended up being told her heart is perfect. Sometimes the beat is so hard it feels like your breath is taken away or something! (well, I'm a very nervous person, so I could be imaging that part, but it was scarey!!) It still happens but never as bad anymore.
