Hi,
 
Im 22 years old and 7 months pregnant. I have had shortness of breath which I notice more when im resting. I check my heart rate and resting it sits between 110-120 and when general walking goes to 130-140 the pregnancy consultant has referred me to cardiology to be seen. Im just wondering if this is something to worry about as my dad has had several heart attacks and had to get stints and a bipass. any information would be appreciated.
 
thanks
 
lucie

Hello and welcome,
 
You are young, 22 and pregnant.  I would try not to worry unless you are having new sx besides what you described here.  If you feel something has changed do call your Dr. or seek emergency attention.
 
I feel being referred to  cardiology is a grand idea.  If all checks out OK you will feel much better.
 
Congratulations on your soon to be new baby.
 
Kindly,
Kitt

I am sorry you are having a bad day.  Do you have any history of anxiety ? Anything bothering you other then the heartrate fears?
 
Gentle Hugs,
Kitt
