why is my pulse high? its making me feel like crap!

Hey everyone :) Im new here and this is my first question!

Im 25 weeks pregnant and today my pulse is 89 BPM. usually its about 62 or so. Is this normal...or bad for the baby? What does it mean for it to be high like this when I'm not even doing anything strenuous?

Thanks!

  • The best thing to do if you are worried about this is call your Doc. No one here knows your personal medical history and they are only telling you what worked for them. Don't mess around if you are concerned, please call your Docs office!!
