In fact, from some of the stuff I've read a great number of people will have it and never even know.
I have it and didn't even know it. It showed up at the end of my first pregnancy because of the racing heart rate and they dismissed it as just being a side effect of pregnancy. It showed up again in my second pregnancy at the end and I went to a cardiologist where it was diagnosed and he said that because my symptoms only present when really pregnant 8+ they would do nothing and I did not have antibiotics for either vaginal delivery.
