Low Fetal Heartbeat For The 6 Week Old Fetus

My wife is 40, and this is our second child together. We just went in for our first OB visit. They did a US and found the 6 week old fetus has a heartbeat of 80. We are scheduled to go back in 5 days. They said this is not the best heartbeat. Does it look like it could be a miscarriage?

Not if there is no other signs such as heavy cramps, bleeding etc. Dont worry it could that the fetus is a bit young. Good luck

The heartbeat is normally quite a bit higher, I won't lie to you about that. But Karen could be right. It could just be because the baby is still so young. I don't think they normally hear the heartbeat until 8-10 weeks anyway, so 6 weeks is pretty early. I wish you lots of luck.
