Arrhythmia : It doen't sound like svt, it may however be related to pregnancy and the ablation. See your doctors for evaluation.

See Doc: It is impossible to know for sure what your irregular heart beat without testing, which will likely include an ekg, or a home monitor (holter or event recorder) to determine what it is you have and if any treatment is needed.
