Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Pregnancy itself demands increased work from the heart and hence the change.

More blood should flow to the stomach for digesting the food.
Increasing the rate (or volume per beat) is how that is achieved.

A rate of 50 at other times is rather slow.
It needs documentation and investigation
Proper assessment from a cardiologist is necessary to make sure, all is well.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
