Baby Heartbeat

Last month the baby's heartbeat was 164 and today it was 150. Is this okay and normal?

  • My son's heart beat will change from visit to visit. At first he was 153. When I spent my 3 days on IV at the hospital his went up and down between 160 and 140. Last time his heartbeat was 157. The doctor tells me that Gab is like anyone when it comes to his heart. When he is active he's heartrate is a little faster. It's nothing to get scared over it just means he was being more active last month.

  • Those are both good heart rates. No need to worry. Sometimes they are a bit higher that the last time, don't fret Momma, everything is FINE!
