Resting heart rate while pregnant?

Does anyone know if your resting heart rate is usually a little higher while pregnant? Mine is usually between 50 and 55 BPM and has been as low as 45 BPM but I just took it out of curiosity to see if pregnancy would affect it and it was 60 BPM... Do you think it's pregnancy related or just happens to be higher than usual at the moment?

  • your body is pumping 2 times the amount of blood as it usually does so I would think it would be higher

  • Your heart is working harder right kwno with being pregnant so it is going to be a little higher.
