Is it common or normal to have an elevated pulse during pregnancy? My resting pulse lately has been in the 90's.

Yes. Progesterone causes a drop in your peripheral vascular resistance (i.e. it relaxes the smooth muscle in your blood vessels causing decreased tone), which causes your BP to decrease and pulse to increase.

Of course, if you start having other symptoms such as hot flashes, panic attacks, etc it could be something else such as high thyroid. Of course, if it bothers you alot you could ask your MW or OB.

HTH.

I've had that in all of my pregnancies, my previous OBs and current midwife have all said that it is normal but that if I have other things that don't feel right to give them a call.

Thanks, all... I'll be seeing the mw on Tuesday so I'll just wait and see what she says then.
