In brief: Pulse and Pregnancy
Pulse rate, also known as heart rate is a measure of the number of times your heart beats in one minute.
Measured as: BPM = beats per minute. Normal heart rate in a non-pregnant female is around 70. During pregnancy, the body's demands increase resulting in a higher pulse or heart rate. Normal is around 80-90.
