Post Partum

Melissa - posted on 10/29/2008 ( 2 moms have responded )




Hello! My son is now six weeks old and within the past few days I have been getting heart palpitations. I believe I had them with my first son as well but when I went for my check-up there was nothing unusual. Has anyone else every experienced this after having a baby? And did it go away on it's own. I just stopped caffeine to see if that would help but don't have any other ideas! Thank you!

Are you feeling weepy or anxious? When my husband leaves for work, I feel very nauseated. And I worry about the day ahead of me. Anyway, it could be some part of post partum depression. I was just diagnosed with that, and they did ask me about heart palpitations, though I haven't had any of that. My PPD is more anxiety than depression, but its still the same thing. Just a thought... Good luck! I have a 6 week old baby too...
