I just had my first appointment today. I am 8 weeks 5 days. Anyway my baby's heart rate was 171 BPM. The nurse said everything looked good so I didn't think twice. I started wondering later if this was on the high side so I looked up what a normal range is and it is 120-160.
Should I be concerned??
Congrats on your pregnancy! I think in the very beginning it is a bit faster. Don't worry, if a nurse who does this for a living said it looked good, I wouldn't worry!
Wishing you a happy & healthy 9 months!
At my 8 week appointment, my baby's heartrate was 174 and at my 12 week appointment it was 171 so I think your baby's heartrate is definitely in the normal range. And don't always believe those old wives tales...I'm having a boy!
shoot! Now I beginning to wonder about mine. I had my u/s and heard the hb at 6w and it was 126. RE said it was within the normal range (100 - 180) but after reading ya'lls I'm beginning to wonder! Everyone I have talked to has had a high hb reading. My RE said the farther along I get the hb will start to slow down to a "normal" beat.
I went for my 8 week check up and the baby's heart beat was 186bpm doc said it was fine I went in at 10weeks(different kind of visit) and they checked to make sure everything was ok and the heart beat was 177 I just went for my 12 week visit and it was 166 so I think you are ok
