Low Fetal Heart Rate At 5 Wks 5 Days

HOPEFUL79 - October 4

I'm hoping that someone out there can give me some promising news....I originally found out that I was pregnant on September 17th. I went to the doctor approx. 2 wks later and based upon the date of my last period he figured I was about 6 wks pregnant, according to my math that seemed correct. I went in for an US this past Wednesday and the US only showed that I was 5 wks/5 days w/ a fetal heart rate of 98 bpm. When I spoke to the doctor, he seemed optimistic and didn't think that I should be concerned, however, given the gestation age of the fetus that would put me finding out that I was pregnant at just two weeks! Is this possible? Should I be expecting the worse at this point? I'm scheduled for another US in two weeks, the waiting is the worst part!

When I was 5w 6d pregnant I went to the er for some cramping in my side. They did an u/s and the hb was only 104 bpm. I was concerned that it was too low but after much research on the net I learned that the baby's hb only starts beating during the 5th week and it starts in the 80's increasing by 3 bpm per day. When I went for my 7 week u/s the hb was in the 160's! I think you will be fine but look up low fetal heartbeat in early pregnancy and I think you find the information that I came across. Please keep me updated!
