Heart rate 144 Bpm - Sick with Cough - Is this normal?
avatar
teacherfetish posted:
I woke up from sleeping at 2 am and noticed my heartbeat felt quick. I just got sick with a cough today and I have a headache. My face is hot, but my feet are cold, and I assume that's just because of the cold. I checked my heartbeat laying down, breathing at a normal pace, and the first time I counted to 60. I got 144 bpm. I counted again about an hour from then to 10 seconds and counted 25 beats and multiplied by 6. I'm 30 weeks pregnant. I'm not excited or anything, very calm and relaxed in fact. Does this sound normal?
