When I try to get comfortable or go to sleep or just anytime during the day at all. My pulse is going fast throughout the day different times sitting standing, doing light cleaning doesn't matter. I am not really stressed just normal stress of a 2 year from tantrums other then that no stress at all. It feels like I am stressed a lot without the stress. Does anyone feel like?

Good to know because last time I went to the doc they said my heart was rasing, and my blood prusher was high. They didnt do anything yet at least. They checked the babys heart beat and it was fine.



Maybe just relax and watch tv to get your mind off stuff? Maybe it will help?

Idk I might be in the same boat as you, so your not alone

I have a 2 and 1/2 year old and I am a stay at home mom. My daughter is really acting out and not listening at times and I think that makes it worst for me.

Yes I go have a history of heart problems, blood pressure all sorts of things like that's why I worry sometimes, but my doctor told me my blood pressure is find and have read more and more it's normal to have a pulse that is faster during pregnancy!

I had a high pulse rate and my doctor freaked out and admitted me to the hospital for testing. Needless to say, $6000 later and still the same, I am doing fine! My doctor did take me off of work for the rest of the pregnancy, but I still have a racing heart throughout the day and sometimes for no reason. I just sit down and try not to think of anything that causes me stress and it usually goes back down. I did buy a cuff blood pressure/pulse rate monitor for about $30 bucks which makes me feel a little bit better. My doctor is not freaking out anymore now that all those tests came back fine.

I had it with my third! It is mostly nothing to worry about unless you have a history of heart problems or high blood pressure. :)

I had fluttering palpitations at times throughout my first pregnancy. They did a "Holter" monitor on me. It's a heart monitor that goes on you, attaches around the neck on a chain. You have to write down the time you do anything. Like 1:04 - went pee. 1:06 - Walked downstairs 1:07 sat on couch. Basically all your activity. Then they compare the monitor to your activity and look for irregularities. I knew mine went fast because I was at work one day (I'm a nurse) and was on a break and had some flutterings. I hooked myself up to an oximeter and clocked my pulse at 160+/min while at rest. This would last 5-6 minutes then go away. They found nothing on the Holter with me, but I didn't have any episodes while I was on it. It went away after my pregnancy and I didn't have it with my next one.
