Grandpa Viv A Question For You

I just read your answer to the gas and heartburn post. Recently I have been experiencing a shortness of breath and I find myself having to slow down for a second and take an extra breath, also I am exhausted. I have also been experiencing feeling my hearbeat more. It is just more prevalent. I can feel my pulse more. What is this? Is this a sign?

Exhausted as in sleeping more, or just plumb wore out? I don't know about the heartbeat. The longer this forum perks along, the more one picks up on signs that aren't mentioned in the texts. Blood volume doubles during pregnancy. Blood vessels dilate, the kidneys work harder, I guess its reasonable to a__sume that the heart starts working harder too. I wonder if blood pressure changes in early pregnancy. Everyone out there please feel the pulse in your wrist and tell us if it is easier to feel than usual!

Yep! Hypotension (low blood pressure) is a common finding in early and mid pregnancy.

It sounds like you could have anxiety to me.

Nope sorry it is not anxiety. I just saw something about grandpa viv saying that some become short of breath in the earl stages. I have felt this since the beginning of when i think it all started but didn't think anything of it til I read it. I didn't want to ask cuz I thought_t soundsed stupid, but it makes sense to me. No anxiety!

Mallory, I have had that happen to me also. I don't know if I'm pregnant, but sometimes I feel my pulse more and wondered if it was anxiety. Who knows huh :-)
