I went to to have a Vaginal u/s done last tuesday and was measured at 5w6d with a hb of 82. I was put on progesterone to help maintain the pregnancy too. Everyone keeps telling me the heart beat will speed up since it just started!!!! I have another u/s on 1-30 so I hope the baby hb increases!!!! Any comments or suggestion appreciated... Thanks.. ?

If it is a viable pregnancy, the HB will increase. When the baby's HB first starts, it is low and rises every day, so I wouldn't be too concerned. 6 weeks is still very early.

i was just watching that discovery health channel show "In the Womb" and i agree that the heartbeat has really only started beating and will speed up a lot. i remember it also said it reaches its peak at 9 weeks, i think it was.

yes the babies HB picks up the older it gets mine at 6 weeks 5 days was 121, than at 9 weeks some days 176, at 13 weeks i believe it was 168 than droppped to 146 and is now between 150-155. take care

This is a little off topic but i watched that show too! It was really interesting and detailed. Tania, Your baby's little heart is just figuring things out. It will speed up and speed up and then slow down as it gets older. The fact that it even has a heartbeat is a good sign so try not to worry. I'm sure your baby is healthy.
