HEARTRATE

Postby l412angel » Sat Feb 13, 2010 06:09 pm

I have begun working out with my trainer again, and she suggested I get a heart rate monitor. Through this whole PE/HELLP issue I have noticed my heart rate is a bit high.
I wore my heart monitor last night to bed and my resting rate was about 69-75
Sitting on the couch its as low as 79 and high as 100 just sitting here...
When I get up and move around (walk up the stairs...make dinner) its about 116-125

I know resting heart rate is anywhere from n60-100 but my ? is what is your heart rate supposed to be when your just doing daily activity? Input would be wonderous!

I don't know what your h/r is supposed to be during daily activities, but my resting h/r was elevated and didn't normalize until 3 or 4 months postpartum. It was variable but mostly in the 90's for the first few months, before dropping to 69-72. It stayed there until I got pregnant again. Now it is all over the place again. Maybe that is what's going on with you.

Gotcha! Did they tell you why it does that during pregnancy?

No, I don't know why it does that. Before I got pregnant again I assumed it was due to the stress of loosing my daughter, but once I got a BFP and it started fluctuating again I decided it was hormonal and due to increase in blood volume. I haven't asked my docs.

I asked this same question because my normal resting heart rate would tend to run in the 60s/low 70s and with pregnancy seems to run 80s/90s. When I asked, the OB said it was due to extra blood volume.
