  • Nah, the heartbeat fluctuates. As far as I know there is no medical cause for concern with it. My son's goes from 130-160. As long as it is somewhere higher than 130 and lower than 200 I think you are ok. I would ask my doctor if you are really concerned, but I wouldn't worry over it too much! :)
