Should I worry??

I had a ultrasound today and the heart rate was 137...when I went 2wks ago it was 155 I'm scared cause it has dropped in less then 2wks. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it normal?

  • The usual range is 120-160 beats per minute, so you're still good there... I wouldn't worry about it unless the doctor seems concerned.

  • Usually the heartrate is pretty high and then drops a bit. No need to worry, it is normal :)

  • Your baby could've been moving around one day and not so active the other. Like adults, the heart rate varies, For a fetus anything normal is 120-160 bpm.

  • Don't worry, it's true that between 120 and 160 is considered normal. I don't know how far along you are but it's normal for there to be a considerable drop between the 1st and 2nd trimester.
