Heartbeat Concern

Kristal - February 1

I'm 26 weeks along, and I frequently listen to my baby boy's heartbeat with our fetal heartbeat monitor, I know the average heart beat is from 120-160bpm, but my baby's is only like 98. What does this mean?

i would contact my dr and tell him/her they may want you to come in so they can check things out. when do you have a dr appt? when was your last one? are you sure you are listening to the baby's and not yours? (just a suggestion) call your dr. I wish you the best

You might no be hearing just you babies heartbeat. It is very possible that you are picking up a mix of yours and his which would cause your count to be off. There is a large artery in the abdomen that will produce heart tones when using a doppler. Your heart rate could very well be 98.
