My Fitbit HR detected pregnancy after Ov!!! Why doesn't everybody know this!!!


Just wanted to share with you all as I can't believe believe I didn't know this!

I got a fitbit HR in Sept and it measures your resting heart rate each day... It was always between 57-61, it would go up the day I ovd, then back down again.... On my 3rd cycle wearing it, it went up at ov time, then down the next day, then from 2dpo up, up, up...I did some searching, wondering what would make my resting heart rate increase as I was well, hadn't been Doing anything strenuous and wasnt stressed....the only thing that came back was early preg. Of course your heart rate would increase, your body is working harder! I asked on here at around 4/5dpo and the people that replied had said their heart rates increased in their tww....so it was possible! Below is the graph of my resting heart rate..dec 17th is when I ovd. If I were to guess when I implantated, Id say 9dpo (my bbt chart in sig...that shows two lower temps at 8/9dpo). But my heart rate chart shows a big dip at 9dpo, followed by an increase that just keeps increasing! Its all very interesting! I got my bfp at 11dpo! But if I had been sure of the heart rate thing before, I could have found out at 2dpo onwards!
I know so much can happen (or not happen) its just that Im surprised that we look for all these symptoms which are also typical for impending af, yet this sign is only there in early preg! for me anyway! would love to know if any of you have ever used this method before or have fitbits but didnt know this! xx

Mine did the same for me 2 cycles in a row (had a chemical before this baby). RHR went from 48-52 to 67-70 and has remained there since. So cool!

That's so cool! Bit annoyed that this is our last and I won't get to try it out in the future.

Wow, that's awesome!

I got the charge HR for Christmas when I was already pregnant but pretty sure I'm having another mc so will be able to try this out when we TTC again. Sorry if that sounds morbid but trying to be positive lol! X

Thank you, it's in the post, I just need to remain positive and hope it is over quickly.

I will have everything crossed for a sticky bean for you! Thanks for sharing the HR thing, interested to see if it follows with subsequent pregnancies! X

My HR always increases with PG. This is how I noticed I was PG with all three. The second time was soon obvious that I almost passed out during beach body workout. I was wearing my HR monitor and noticed my HR was crazy high.
