In brief: Skipped beat!

This happens to almost everyone, more to coffee drinkers.
If it happens more than 5 times in one minute, mention it to your primary care physician at your next annual.

In brief: Probably PVCs

You probably have premature ventricular beats commonly known as pvcs.
It is an extra early beat coming from the lower chamber of the heart followed by a pause or delay after which there is a stronger beat. Sometimes patients feel like it takes their breath for a second. Usually not a concern but please talk to your doctor about it.
