Yes: Overall, yes. Blood volume in pregnancy increases significantly, and the heart needs to work more to pump it. Fortunately, the cardiovascular system adjusts very well to this greater demand and most women don't develop heart issues while pregnant. Women with previous heart disease, however, are at higher risk; there are also some rare but serious pregnancy-associated cardiac complications.

At every visit: You will have your blood pressure checked at every visit. It is normal in pregnancy to see your blood pressure decrease in the second trimester and then slowly rise. Blood pressure measurements, especially in the second half of pregnancy, are important in identifying women with gestational hypertension and/or preeclampsia, conditions that can significantly impact both mother and baby.

Pack early!: It is best to get organized and have your bag ready a few weeks before your due date, so that when labor truly starts, you can just grab it and go. In it, make sure you have your camera, cell phone, insurance information, any essential toiletries you want to bring. Most importantly, make sure you know when and how to contact your OB at all times, and how to get to the hospital!
