The last week or so we have noticed my heart rate is pretty high... anywhere from 110-130 bpm.
My OB doesn't seem to be too concerned, he asked questions today at my appointment. If I was short of breath a lot (not really), if I have a fever (no), if my C-section scar hurts (it's a little sensitive to touch, but doesn't hurt.)

So he felt comfortable with waiting and our VBAC is still planned. (I'm 39 weeks pregnant)

 

But it's still kinda freaking me out... anyone else's heart rate that high? Any experience with it?

Mine was really high for a few weeks and I happened to see the endocrinologist that week and she lowered my Synthroid just a touch.  For me, I always feel like that's the one symptom I notice if my thyroid is a bit on the high side.  I'm not sure if the lower dosage is what actually helped (since my thyroid was within normal range and she didn't change the dose that much) but it did resolve itself in a couple of weeks.  I was a bit freaked out too.  Mine was in the 120s during that time.

Hmm, I"ve never had any thyroid issues before...I guess that could be it though...

I just hope there's not something wrong with my heart...

I know what you mean.  I have an extra beat occasionally but it really seems to be acting up lately.  It's nerve-wracking.  When my heatrate was high a few months ago, that was incredibly nerve-wracking too.
