fetal heart rate... low??? or normal??

last friday i had some spotting so i went to er where they performed an ultrasound baby measured 3 mm and had a heart rate of 95 bpm then had to go today to check and see baby again today the heart rate was about the same but baby had grown to be 7 mm doc said the heart rate seemed low to her but she doesnt perform ultrasounds this early very often said she has 2 other patients right now both also 6 weeks pregnant and they are also showing heart rates of 90-100 bpm .. doc said she wants me back in 2 weeks to check on baby again i need help... has anyone else had a ultrasound this early on and had a heartrate this low ... i have looked up a few things on the internet and see some places say at 6 weeks gestation heartrate is between 95 and 113 bpm and by the 9th week it should be up to 140-180 bpm... i hope that web site is accurate! anyone else who can ralate or any advice at all would be great ...thanks
