  • 130 isn't too low. The would be more concerned if it was dropping suddenly for some reason rather than just be plugging along at a slow rate. I'm sure at this point they might want to run a non-stress test on the baby to see if when the baby moves there is a heart acceleration.

  • my babys heart rate is in the 130s and I am 24 weeks. Dr, says it sounds great. So I dont know if I would worry too much

  • 120 - 160 is normal range. Don't worry too much. Meds will slow the baby down, most likely he is sleeping.
