  • Well, when you're pregnant a whole bunch of extra blood is swimming around in your blood stream.. so I'd imagine there could be a visible difference in your pulse... maybe.

  • nope none at all. What if you were just back from a run, or have naturally high blood pressure.

  • never heard that one before either. But all the other old wives tales have a 50/50, so, a right guess is probably just a "lucky guess"
