Hi.. Generally the heart rate increases as pregnancy is progressing and it is a normal physiological changes.. These changes are secondary to increased blood volume, anemia.  So how high is the pulse rate and how regular is the pulse rate that determine the consequences.. So leave it to your doctor to assess these for you..
