  • Mine is the same way! I too have been worried. I gave birth on August 7, 2009 to a 9 lb 2 oz baby girl (vaginal delivery with epidural, second child). I've noticed my resting heart rate is in the upper 50's and usually no more than 60. Hard telling how low it gets when I sleep. I had cold sweats a little bit ago for the first time. But I had a bowel movement and then felt better. Otherwise I feel fine. Do you feel okay?
