  • Normal.

    There is a story that boys heartrates are under 140 and girls are over... but it doesn't bear out in research. Right around there is normal.

  • It's normal. Your doctor will tell you if it's not (if that's where you got the reading from). I was told that between 120-180 is normal. It's a pretty large range but apparently it fluctuates depending on what stage they are in

  • yes. If it wasn't they doc or midwife would have said it wasn't unless you don't have good communication with him or her.
