33weeks pregnant and my heart feels like it's pounding hard and forceful, yet my heart rate is normal 80bpm... Is this still classed as a palpitation?

Yes, but. Although palpitations are classified as any heartbeat that is irregular, too fast, or more forceful than usual, it is more worrisome when they are too fast or irregular. When pregnant, our cardiac output increases dramatically, and the force of our heartbeats can be stronger and more perceptible. If you do not have any chest pain, shortness of breath, or feeling dizzy, then I wouldn't worry. .
