Pregnancy findings: The heart rate goes up through pregnancy, at rest and during exercise. Some arrhythmias can flare up during pregnancy as well (including those that are not dangerous). A resting heart rate of 140 is fast but not usually dangerous. But you should have your doctor do an ekg and/or heart monitor to ensure you are not having a rhythm abnormality that needs treatment. ...Read more
High output: During pregnancy, here is a significant increase in plasma volume, creating a dilutional effect on one's blood counts (anemia). This coupled with the large flow of blood from maternal circulation to the placenta causes a compensatory rise in heart rate to generate the necessary cardiac output and deliver enough oxygen to the tissues. ...Read more

What is a growth scan for in pregnancy? Will they check my baby's heart? I wanna know the heart rate! What will they measure in this scan? I'm 34weeks
Growth scan: A growth scan is an ultrasound to see that the baby is growing appropriately. They will take various measurements from which they will compare to those from a previous ultrasound to be sure they have grown enough and not too much. The baby's heart beat should be checked at each visit and you can ask what it is even without a scan. It should vary just as yours does. Hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Early on in the pregnancy, are there any indications of the sex of the baby from the heart rate? My partner and i are really excited to know the sex of our baby, and we don’t want to have to wait for the ultrasound. We’re going to an early appointment thi
Old : Old wives tales suggest that girl fetuses have heart rates above 140, while boy fetuses tend to have heart rates lower than 140. Unfortunately, as sexy as it sounds to believe that we might predict a babyâ€™s sex by the heart rate, itâ€™s simply not true. Repeated studies have proven that fetal heart rate does not correlate to fetal sex, but it does correlate to gestational age. As fetuses develop, their heart rates tend to drop. As a mother, i know how impatient i was to discover that i was having a little girl, but i can tell you that the thrill i felt when i found out my babyâ€™s gender made it well worth the wait. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
About 140 (+or- 30): The fetal heart rate can vary considerably depending on the mother's heart rate and health and on the fetal metabolic state, level of activity and probably several other factors. Normally in a very quiet, relaxed postprandial or sleep-like state, it would tend to be low (115 to 120) ; at other times it could possibly rise to 150-160 beats per minute or transiently perhaps to 170-180. ...Read more
