Our expert says:
Many different symptoms may be experienced during pregnancy. And the large-scale hormone changes can make one more irritable and moody. Presumably you have been seeing a competent doctor to confirm and monitor your pregnancy, and this should have been able to rule out any physical problems as a basis for these symptoms.
A fresh check-up may be a good idea, to evaluate these symptoms better. On the whole, they sound like anxiety attacks, not peculiar in pregnancy, and readily giving these symptoms, including more rapid heart-beat and increased awareness of it, and of course anxiety itself. A vicious cycle easily develos, when the symptoms make you anxious, which worsens the symptoms, and so on.
Have a checkup for re-assurance, as its probably everything's OK, but its always best to be sure
