  • your babys heartrate will sons would be 160 then go to 120 then bounce back to 160....its normal if your doc isnt worried...i wouldnt long as she i she is moving....i wouldnt can always ask your doc to do a non-stress test......20 minutes to an hour of you laying in a bed at the hospital hooked up to the monitors.....

  • Heartrate fluctuates in babies just like in grown-ups. It could happen for plenty of reasons, like if she was more active last week, or if you're more calm and relaxed this week. There's a range of "normal", and as long as it falls within that range, it's fine. If you're worried about it, keep track of her movements for a while to reassure yourself, since a heartrate that's too low is usually accompanied by a decrease in fetal movement.
