Question: 
I have recently had a 24 hr ECG which showed frequent aberrant beats, 3 couplets and 4 cycles of trigeminy. I am 26 weeks pregnant. I first noticed an irregular heart beat about 3 weeks ago. Is this anything to worry about? My doctor is sending me for an echocardiogram. Thank you

Often these are perfectly innocent, but they need evaluation, especially if developing during pregnancy. It requires blood work, EKG, monitoring and a cardiac ECHO.
