I am 40 and 11 weeks pregnant. This is my 4th child. My heart has been racing a lot lately. . .normally my resting is around 85-90 bpm but some days I've been 120+ for most of the day. It really tires me out. I try to lay down as much as possible, but that's hard with a 3 yr old. I don't remember this happening until the late 2nd trimester with my other kids, and even then, not as often or for as long. Is this normal? I am also hypo-thyroid (on synthroid) and getting that checked again tomorrow.
