Re: Heart palpitations or jumping....
Yeah, they are definitely worse when you are pregnant. I have sinus tachycardia which basically means my heart beats too fast all of the time. I had to be put on medication for it about three years ago. The medication regulates your heart rate. Even with being on the medication, at the beginning of my pregnancy this time, I had so many palpitations that I called and got in to see my doctor. They ended up doing a 24 hour monitor just to be sure, and everything was fine. Hormones is what they chalked it up to. Of course it never hurts to ask your doctor if you are really worried, but I think it's pretty normal, although annoying and a little scary.
