Post In-Utero question - about baby's pulse

Hello all,

Does anyone know the range that the baby's heartbeat is supposed to be? I think It's between 130 & 160 - but I'm not positive....

anyway, I went to the OB today and he said that the baby's heartbeat is at 140.....and up until now it was at a constant 150....just wondering.

any info that anyone would have would be greatly appreciated.

120-160 is considered normal for a fetal heartrate. Although, my second baby's was as high as 171 once and they weren't concerned. Its perfectly normal for your baby's heart rate to change from time to time depending on activity, last time you ate, ect.

At the beginning of my PG the heart rate was 178. At by 21 Week U/S it was 156 and at my last Dr. Appt at 24 Weeks it was 153. The Dr. said it does slow down a bit as your pg progresses. I would say you are very normal!
Have a great day!

Went for my checkup yesterday, I'm 20 weeks this Friday, and baby's heartbeat was in the 140's and Dr. said that's perfect. As other posts said, can change based on baby's movements and when you ate etc...

Take care
