Has anyone else noticed that their heart rate's gone up during the last month or so? Mine's gone from a resting HR in the 70s to 80s & 90s. My midwives chalk it up to my heart working harder to pump my increased blood volume. I feel fine except for the horse that's galloping in my chest!

Anyone else?

Mines gone from an average rhr of 60 bpm, and now its about 100-105 bpm. Part of it is because of my low bp. I don't remember if my heartbeat was this fast during my last pregnancy. It can seem scary at times, but my midwives don't seem concerned about it.

I am not sure if the numbers reflect it, but at the end of this and my last pregnancy I felt like my heart was beating faster than normal. It's really irritating!

It is normal. It happened to me during my last pregnancy. I did some research and found out it is quite common....

Mine absolutely raced at times with my first pregnancy, and my midwife just said it was hormone-related. But I haven't noticed it much since. Not unusual though, but can be scary when it gets really fast.

So interesting- thanks guys! Melaya, my BP is still fairly low, so I wonder if that plays in to it too! Thanks all

Oh yeah, mine's way up there. Before pg I was a 45-60 bpm and now it's over 70 most of the time. I wear a heart rate monitor when exercising so I can keep it in the 140 range, and it's amazing how little it takes to get up there! Annnoying? Yes, but I keep telling myself it won't last forever...
