aww thats wonderful! And I know, as rotten as you feel now, its a quiet blessing as y ou know things are progressing as they should. Im in limbo at the mo, too early for a scan, symptoms havent really kicked in yet, hopefully itl be this week (it was week 6 with my previous 2 ) but my last preg, i too started feeling less pregnant but didnt think much of it as id seen baby at 6wks with a strong heartbeat...then at 9weeks had a private scan just because we wanted one, no reason other than we couldnt wait until 12wks and baby was there with no heartbeat it never came either so I had it removed about 10days later....it measured 7wk 2 days which is when we have a scan booked for this time. Your resting hr sounds very similar to mine, i always thought mine seemed low in comparison to others, so thats made me feel better before my bfp it was high 50's-low 60's. Xxx

My heart rate is slowly going back down again, but remains above my pre-pregnancy resting rate. Mine was about 48-50 previously, peaked at 67 once pregnant, now it's sitting at 62.

I have wondered this before too but I find that every month during the tww my RHR is higher than pre O. From what everyone has told me heart rate doesn't increase until later in the first trimester. I am pretty sure I am pregnant right now and my heart rate has been going down. I've been sleeping 2-3 hours more a night so I know that's why. So it's not fool proof and I wouldn't worry about it too much if it's not increasing but it is definitely a easy sign to track if you have a fitbit HR.

aw this is interesting and the reason why I posted, to hear how others have found their hr changes. For me it increased straight after ov then dipped at implantation (what I guessed would have been implantation) then jumped and remained at another new level from 10dpo. On a usual non preg cycle it may go up one figure on day of ov, but return to pre ov figure after then. So at 3dpo i was thinking 'ay-up, whats going on here then!?..could it be??' obviously it was! From what Ive read, it'll go up again towards the end of first tri xx

Mine always went up when ovulating, it just stayed raised from there when pregnant.

Hi ladies,

Since seeing this I've checked my Fitbit heart rate. I've had my Fitbit for nearly a year and saw that usually my heart beat (resting) is 67. Over the last three weeks it went up to 74 so I was chuffed as I'd got my BFP so thought this was a great sign. But in the last five days my resting heart beat has gone down to 68 😓

I've had two miscarriages since having my son - one in September 2015 and one in September 2014.

Is this a bad sign? I'm so worried x

I was so excited to check my fitbit when I read this. I love the theory! For me, I do not fit the predicted pattern. I did have a spike in rhr with O, then it fell with a sharp dip right around implantation and has been hovering around my normal rhr ever since. I'm 5w4d. I wish I had data going further back, so I could see if I had a different pattern from usual this month.

Caz, I wouldn't worry. I think heart rate raises for some in the first trimester, but for others it is later.
It is a fun thing to check during the tww! But, I don't think the absence of it in a confirmed pregnancy is anything unusual.
