Heart palpitations?

Has anyone else experienced heart palpitations in their pregnancy? I'm only 9 weeks but over the last few weeks I've been noticing every now and then (maybe 3-5 times a day and each episode only lasts a couple seconds) it all of the sudden feels like my heart is in my throat and I have to cough, just an odd sensation and I definitely don't remember it from my last pregnancy. I've heard it can be normal due to increased blood volume in prengancy, and someone told me it could be the hormones, but I'm not sure. I have an OB appointment on friday I'll ask him about it and I'm not really worried about it, but just curious to find out if many others have experienced this. Thanks for reading!
