Does anyone remember their baby's fetal heartrate at 6wks?

I just had my first ultrasound and they said my baby's heartrate was 98 bpm. The doctor said it was low because they like it to be at 120 and I have to go back for another u/s on Tuesday to "confirm viability". Any info you may have on fetal heartrates would be greatly appreciated.

  • Had you eaten before the appointment? Your blood sugar affects the baby as well. Good luck.

  • Yea. That's pretty low. I know mine was around 180 cause they were like, "Oh, you might have a grrl." But then the rest of the pregnancy, it was always around 140.

  • I dont really remember. I think it ranged from 110 to 140, depending on the time of the day.

  • 141 for both. then it slowed a little with emma as i got further along. never below 131 for her. but max was always around 121-126...but that was around 5-9 months....in the beginning it was 141-150.
