High heart rate for mom

My hands swoll up yesterday from being on hands and knees planting in the garden. Just to be on the safe side, I checked my blood pressure. Blood pressure is fine but my mom commented on how a heart rate of 99 was high. I checked it a couple more times last night and this morning and my resting heart rate is between 96 and 108. Is this normal?

  • It is normal for your heart rate to be higher than normal throughout pregnancy. I was concerned in my last pregnancy when I noticed mine was high as well, so I asked my dr and they said it was completely normal.
