Every time I go to the Dr they take my bp and pulse and each time my pulse is about 100 sometimes 105 or 110. they haven't said anything to me about that being bad should I ask them or do you think that they would have told me if this was a bad sign?

Keep in mind that those are resting pulses. Unless your doctor says otherwise, if you work out it's safe to exercise in the training zone as you normally would. (There's a good explanation of the training heart rate at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/activity/thr.htm.)

From what I have read... the average (non-pregnant) pulse is around 72, and pregnancy will raise it around 10 Beats per minute to 82 BPM.

Tachycardia is diagnosed at 100 BPM and you should go into labor and delivery if your resting pulse is 120 or above. Sometimes, fast pulse is a symptom of PE. Hope that helps!

What should your pulse be during pregnancy? At what point is it dangerous? I can't seem to find much info on this...
Thanks for all the help! [:)]
