    Just wondering if any one knows whats normal range for Resting Heart Rate during pregnancy?

    When i was at my MW app this morning I noticed mine was 97, She never mentioned it and I had been telling her how i was having chest pains and tightness so guessing if it was a problem she would have said oh your hb is high!!!!!

    Hubby is nearly giving him self a heart attack worrying that mine is too hight lol

    Mine is high normally...around 115 and it goes up during labor, not said anything to me so 97 can't be that bad...if you see what I mean?! X

    60-90 is normal non-pregnant. I'd expect it to go up a bit too. Maybe she should have taken your chest pains a bit more seriously, I bet she didn't document it in your notes. Maybe see your GP.

    A normal rate can be anything from 60 to 100 BPM - and because blood pressure is sometimes lower during pregnancy then heart rate is usually higher - if you are concerned you could give your MW a call :)

    Yeah i know its not the first time iv mentioned it to them and the gp fobbed me off over it too even though i have a murmur and errors on my ecg along with a history of non pregnancy related chest pains

    Just get fed up telling them when they dont listen but was little worrie that if there is a problem pregnancy might be putting more of a strain on it

    MW did say if pain got worse or i was worried to just go to hospital lol so guess if it keeps up thats what il have to do :)

    Good to know 97 is normal ish for pregnancy though thanks girls

    Your heart rate is absolutely fine. Any chest pain though in a pregnant woman should be checked. I am sure everything will be fine.

    The amount of blood in your body is much higher when you're pregnant, that's why your heart rate is higher as well. I used to listen to my heart rate, worrying, but now I now it's normal to have a higher heart rate when pregnant.

    You should call mw and ask her if you experience more pains!

    I'm sure everything is fine!

    Thanks hun

    I do tend to be a around 70 ish so 97 seemed a bit of a jump but if i had not been having the pains i proub wouldnt have thought anything about it

    Pains are gone now anyway so feeling better :)
