Re: Anyone have arrhythmia (skipped heart beat) during pregnancy?

Could you be anemic? I had something similiar with this pregnancy, feeling breathless and heart palpitations. Everyone said it was either panic attacks or 'just being pg'. I would get very dizzy, sweaty, breathless, heart palpitations. I would lay down for as long as possible with 3 kids running around but it never really helped. It was sooo frustrating as the dr and nurses kept blowing me off. My 28 wk bloodwork came back as anemic, so now I'm taking an iron supplement and it has really helped. No more feeling breathless, dizzy or heart palpitations and I've only been taking them a wk! Could you go to somewhere like WIC or the health dept and get your iron checked? I really wish they would have checked mine earlier, I spent 5 mos being miserable, stuck 3x for glucose checks but they never thought to check my iron
