I went for u/s at 7 weeks. The rate was 150 bpm. My dr said to be concerned if it is 100 or less.

The usual heartrate can jump between 120 -180. All is good, if its withinthose numbers.

Thanks ladies..waiting is so hard

 

To Laura-all is not good @120 - October 28

I found a website with a chart of beats. I saved it as a word file so I don't have the site address anymore, but here are some basic rates:9 weeks = 168.06, 12 = 165.16, 16 = 161.29, 20=157.42. You might think you are only 7 weeks, but be less. Maybe that's the issue, because 126 sounds very low. (I don't know who said all is good at 120...)

It shoudl be high not low! Read this from a medical website. OB visit at 12w2d. The fetus' CRL measured 51mm which is equivalent to 11w6d. The heartbeat rate was 174 bpm, continuing its slowdown from a peak of 185bpm at 8w5d. It will always be higher than average and settle down in the 165-170 range.

 

Hi Laura - October 28

I had a scare with heart rates yesterday at my drs appt. My baby has an irregular heart beat, I found out it happens sometimes and that I shouldn't be too concerned. As soon as I got home I did a search on the internet, here are some of the sites I found. The average rates vary but many sites stated that the 100 to 160 range was the median. Here are some of the sites I found: www.med.umich.edu/obgyn/ smartmoms/labor/labor/fetalheart.htm www.findarticles.com/p/articles/ mi_m3225/is_n6_v46/ai_13357984 www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/ uvahealth/peds_hrpregnant/fhrm.cfm www.findarticles.com/p/articles/ mi_m3225/is_n6_v46/ai_13357984

I went in for an ultrasound at 6 weeks because of spotting and the fetal heartbeat was 108bpm. I was a little worried but the doctor said anything over 100 was good. Today I just heard the heartbeat and it was 174bpm.

(See post above) the heartbeat was 174bpm at 11 weeks.

Hi Laura, during my 1st u/s we saw our baby's heartbeat at 123bpm and I was 6w3d, recently I just had another u/s and Im 11w3d and our baby's heartbeat was 167bpm. Dr said its normal heartrate and I shouldnt worry, but a friend of mine says (shes a RN) 167bpm is a lil too high. She said normal heartrate should be 120-160bpm. And guess what?!?! Im not listening to her anymore.....If my Dr. said its normal then its normal Im sure Dr knows more than an RN. If I were you, you should contact your OB and ask him/her about your concern instead of worrying. Good Luck!

at 12 wks 6 days my baby's heartbeat was 156....my dr. told me anything between 120 and 180 for a baby is normal.

 

mom of 4 - November 2

normal heart rate is 120-150 although it can go up as high as 200 or as low as 100 sometimes...the spotting could be dehydration or a sign of placenta previa but the doctor will let you know...you are obviously not miscarrying (although at this point there is nothing they could do about that anyway unfortunately)
