High pulse!? — The Bump

High pulse!?

Is anyone noticing their resting heartbeat/pulse is high? Mine is over 100 which is very unlike me. I always closer to 65-70. My blood pressure is normal. I checked with my OB she said its fine since blood volume is increasing but I am just wondering if anyone is also feeling this. I also have low iron which I read might contribute to this as well. My OB said as long as I don't have chest pains it should be ok...

Re: High pulse!?

  • My resting pulse was generally between 100-110 my whole pregnancy. My OB said the same thing about it being increased blood volume. My blood pressure was always on the low side.

  • Yes, at one point my resting heart rate was between 130-150 for a long tim. We were all worried and I was put on some at home heart monitor thing. All was fine and we concluded it was from all extra blood volume from 2 babies!! Don't stress about it but if it bothers you at least talk to your doc and hopefully they can make you feel better :)

  • Mine was 130 - 160 throughout pregnancy. I went to the cardiologist and he said it was due to the twin pregnancy. It went back to normal after delivery.

    I actually made an appointment because I felt like my heart was always racing. They assured me it's completely normal, but it seems scary. Feet up, big glass of water and relax!


  • Mine is over 100; it's usually 80-90 non-pg.

  • My heart rate was also over 100 at rest during my pregnancy. My OB checked for hyperthyroidsim, which was negative. I monitored HR and BP at home throughout my pregnancy.
