Is it normal to have a rapid heart rate when pregnant?
I am 37 weeks pregnant and 23 years old. I have been having a rapid heart rate for the last two days. Is that something I should go get checked out? Or is it something normal that happens?

Please see your physician to have this checked out. There are many different types of fast heart rates. Most are ok but some require attention.
