  • I started getting stress test monitors at 36 weeks I think and his heart rate was was usually in the 140's. When he was moving around it would be in the 160's. Ohh and he's a boy lol.

  • My daughter started out at 155 and is now down to the 130's. My OB told me that in the beginning, all babies have high heart rates, but that girls do tend to have higher ones later on.
