  • I just talked about it with my practitioner. He told me that everything between 120 and 160 is normal (okay). Baby heartbeat under 120 may means that baby's sleeping or that his/her health has been compromised. Heart rate above 160 may mean that baby is in distress indicating infection going in the carrying mother or the baby itself.
