Racing Pulse In EARLY Pregnancy

2 Replies
mshanson - October 6

I'm only 4/5 weeks pregnant and I already notice my pulse has been higher, about 85-100 resting and sometimes if I get up to do something, it'll race as much as 130 (always comes back down with rest). I saw the doctor and they did blood tests, EKG, and I'm booked for an ECG and Halter Monitor but I don't seem to have symptoms of anything else. Has anyone else experienced this in early pregnancy?

Hey mshanson, Yeah I get that too. I have gone to a heart specialist prior to pregnancy and I know I have an irregularly fast heartrate. Resting for me before I was pregnant is 90 or 95 and just like you if I move around of exercise it is not uncommon for my heart rate to jump up to 180-200 bpm so I really have to watch it. You probably have really low blood pressure too. I know I do. On a higher day my blood pressure is like 104/70 or so. There probably isn't anything to worry about. In fact worrying will only make it worse. My anxiety fuels my heart rate as well. I will get scared or something and my heart rate will jump so quick that my blood pressure will drop. That almost always results in either pa__sing out or seeing spots and breaking out in a cold sweat. Last time it happened my blood pressure dropped to 60/40. Take it easy. Im sure every thing will be fine.

Wow! Now that's high! As far as I know it's only gone up to around 130 at the highest. My bp is normal, ranges about 110/75-80 - 125/85 (is higher when my pulse is higher), so within normal range.
