Okay, so this is pretty strange. I know I have normal blood pressure. It was totally fine and even on the low side at my last M/W appointment but whenever I get up and move around -- walk quickly, go up the stairs, carry laundry, chase my 2 year old, etc. -- right after I feel that my heart rate has gone up and I feel it specifically pulsing in my left ear! Is this totally strange, or what? I have put on a lot of weight already and I'm 25 weeks along, so I know that my heart is working extra hard, but does this exaggerated pulsing in my ear seem normal? Dh tried to take my blood pressure the other day but the stethescope we have was free and it is pretty crappy. Dd was trying to participate too so that wasn't really very helpful in getting an accurate reading. But it seemed like my BP was normal. I guess the pulsating in my ear is more irritating than anything, but I just want to make sure it is not a sign of something else -- like high BP or a blood clot. And I don't have an earache or any pain. Hmmmm . . . anyone have similar experiences?
