Hi,

In pregnancy, the heart rate can increase up to some extent and it is not a sign of any abnormality. Neither is it related to a thyroid dysfunction (If the patient is taking medicine for thyroid disease then the heart rate comes under control).

Ideally, tachycardia has to be clinically confirmed and EKG is the option for that. Without this, it cannot be considered pure tachycardia.

Hope I have answered your query, let me know for further assistance.
