At our 11 weeks u/s the baby's heart rate was 174 and then at 13.5 weeks the baby's heartrate was 156.....i asked the dr. if that was normal that it dropped and he said that it always drops a little at the beginning of the 2nd trimester.....I'm praying girl this time....I have 2 boys....3 boys would be so fun too though!

Mommy of 2 boys and a baby on the way.

Not right for me..my girl stays in 145 range.. both of my boys were 130-140 range. It is just an old wives tale!

I'm jealous. I haven't even had my first appointment yet, let alone heard the heartbeat. I have to wait until January to listen to the heartbeat for the first time. :( Hopefully I can convince my doctor to do an ultrasound to make sure everything is ok this month, I have ovarian cysts, so I might be able to get him to check on those, and at the same time, check on the baby.

it seemed to take forever for the day to come!!!!!! i was so ready to just go into the ER and lie so i can hear the heart beat or at least see the baby..im glad i waited it out though :D
