Symptoms : You mention several symptoms. None of which may be connected. A low heart rate can be normal for an athletic person, but it can be related to the heart or other systemic conditions. See a doctor in person

I slow heart rate: A slow heart rate is common in a sportsman but in your case as you mention you are healthy but not sporty, please consult your doctor as you need a face to face consult so your doctor can examine you and suggest a way forward, please consult soon as you have other symptoms as well.

Does pregnancy lead to memory problems?

Yes: Many patients have that complaint in pregnancy, and there are a number of cause. Disruption of sleep is probably the primary reason but many physiological changes in the body compete for blood and oxygen which can affect how sharp one feels. It does get better, though your teen may not agree.

Can drinking water after exercise make your heart rate increase?

No: No....Dehydration following exercise causes increased heart rates....Hydration should lower, not raise heart rates. However heart rate recovery ...How quickly heart rate returns to baseline is a measure of cardiovascular fitness.
