Is it normal to have heart rate at 125 during pregnancy?

I m 23 weeks pregnant. Midwife just measured my heart rate at 125 resting (I was stressed as we d just had a disagreement). She didn t seem overly concerned, but I think this is a bit high. I have no health problems and a BMI of about 27. I m 35. Baby heart rate was 148. Should I ask her to re-take my heart rate?

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) 125 is high heart rate called tachycardia.

2) Please see your gynecologist immediately

Let me know if you have anymore questions.
