  • Did they give you a number? Sometimes it takes a little while to find my little ones too. As long as they weren't worried i wouldnt be either.

  • The heartbeat is going to be fast...somewhere between 130 and 170 beats per minute. So yes, thats good. ER takes a while for anything (finding baby on the ultrasound, finding the heartbeat) because they don't do it everyday, ya know?

  • Earlier in my pregnancy...The baby would move away from the doppler. Even at 29 weeks, she still tries to move away from the doppler, but alas she is limited on space and can only back away and then we get an echo effect. I think anywhere between 120-180 is okay (dont hold me on the numbers I am not 100% sure on them)
