Our expert says:
I am very sorry to hear about the problems you have had with pregnancy.
Your symptoms of rapid heart beat, being out of breath and being lightheaded are not due to the fact that you are not on antidepressants, and are probably also not due to mitral prolapse. However, for your own peace of mind, I would see a cardiologist, who can do an ECG and an echocardiogram and give you a good opinion about the condition of your heart, particularly the mitral valve. Most patients with mitral valve prolapse have a very minor form of the condition which is unlikely to give problems during pregnancy, but it would be important for you to have the problem checked.
I hope things go much better with this pregnancy.
Best wishes, JT
