I am 5 mos pregnant and dealing with anxiety the best I can right now but on Fri my dog died suddenly and has me in a panic again I had to take her to the vet and leave her there and she died that night it was sudden and she was only 5years old. Does anyone constantly

Thanks

HI hunn
First I am so sorry bout your puppy
I love my animals all of them and lost one of my cockatiels not long ago

Yes I do believe you will find that alot of A/P ers do take their pulses quite often and will have a faster rate at times of stress and angst

I am sure this is because of losing your puppy

I am keeping you in my heart thoughts and prayers

Let us know how you are doing plz

Hi there panicky one...

I agree with Lyn, yes, anxious people do take their pulse rate more, and it is often higher. I am constantly taking my pulse, and it is high pretty often.

I would suggest being careful though not to let your pulse get too high. With being pregnant and all, you have to think about your baby too. The odds are great your anxiety from losing your pup is the cause for your high pulse rate, but if ever concerned, be sure to call the doctor. Gotta watch out for that baby...

I would also like to extend my sorrow about the loss of your pup. Someone else on here recently lost their pup, and like I told him, animals become a part of the family, and can feel just as tough to lose as a family member. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Wishing you all the best.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog.  I, too, love my dog like he's one of my children, and I can imagine your loss is horrible.  I believe as the others said that this is what has triggered your anxiety and your quickened heartrate.  I also check my pulse...alot!  It's to the point sometimes that I get a sore spot on my neck from pressing on my artery there.  I know it's a silly thing to do, but I still continue to do it.  Let yourself have some time to deal with your loss and you'll pull yourself back out.

Firstly I would like to say sorry to hear about your dog and congratulations on your pregnancy!!!!
I believe that we, as anxiety sufferers can run a higher pulse at times.
