Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Go to a doctor and tell them what you've been experiencing, pregnant or not.  Your heart reate can increase when you're pregnant, just like your blood pressure, because your body is working in overdrive and will do wacky things for the rest of the 6 months you have left.  They may perform a few tests and ask you a bunch of questions, and worst case scenario, they may put you on some meds, or order you to bed rest.  Yes, that would all suck [once again- worst case], but a healthy mommy is the only way to make a healthy baby!
