Is Heartbeat Too Slow

Hi, I hope you are all feeling well! At my last doc appointment I saw a doctor i never met before (I go to a group practice) and she rushed the visit so fast my head was spinning! Anyways, when she took my baby's heartbeat she said it was "112, good" i remember thinking "whoa-isnt that low!?" but she left right after, i thought she would come back but that was the end of the visit and i never had a chance to ask her and it has really been bothering me. i just took the heartbeat again at home and i came up with 121. I am 32 weeks pregnant. Does that seem too slow?

I've heard that anything above 120 is good, so right now you are good. But I would have thought the doctor would have been concerned with 112. Maybe call and ask to speak to one of the nurses and see if they can help? I am 33 weeks and have found that baby's heart rate has dropped as well at my last appointment. My little ones is always around 170 or very high 160 and this last time I went it was 150. I know that is still high, but I couldn't help but ask why it was so low. That is when I was told anything above 120 was fine.
