I had a doctors apt today..and for the first time i heard the babys heart beat with a doopler...it was very slow like a little faster then mine...but i remember with my first the heart beat was extremly fast...she said the heart beat will get stronger as a get further along..im not sure of any numbers...just wondering isnt it suppost to be really fast no matter ow far along you are?...(im 15 weeks)

Did they give you a heartbeat range? I think anything over 120 is good...did your doctor seemed concerned? If the dr didn't seem concerned, I wouldn't worry so much

I am in the same boat. I had a doctors appointment yesterday when I was 14wks6dys and it was the first time I was able to hear the heartbeat. I asked what the rate was and he said it was 135 and seemed very pleased with that. Most doctor's will be very honest with you and if they see a problem they will tell you. I think in the beginning it was faster or so I thought when I saw it on the ultrasound machine but the baby seems to be growing so amazingly fast I'm sure it is now in a pattern and will continue to either stay that way or the hearbeat will speed up with the baby. I'm excited either way and I don't think you have anything to worry about. :-)

at 13w2d my babies heartrate was in the 170's. The doc said that was good but it seems a little fast after reading this.

both my boys were 150-155 and my daughter was 120-125 (perfectly healthy baby and she turns 2 on the 15TH) and this baby in my tummy is anywhere from 140-160. the fetal heart rate changes throughout pregnancy starting off slower and of course peaking at "whatever" beats and than goes down abit the farther along you are.

We just heard the heart beat today and I am 15w 2 d. It was 160. The doc said that a good hb will be anyehere from 120-150. So I think that your baby is just fine.
