This is only due to my experience. When I was pregnant with my daughter, often at ultrasounds her heart rate would drop right down then come back up again. They would say it was nothing to worry about. My daughter was overdue when I had to go for another check up and they were going to let me go for another week to see if she would come naturally. They put me on a foetal monitor to check her heart rate, they watched and then her heart rate dropped down to the 40's and stayed there for a minute or so (felt like forever), they called all the doctors and the specialist in to decide what to do. They broke my water and induce labour quite quickly with a drip then just monitored the baby constantly. Labour went good and her heart rate came back up so they didn't need to take me to theatre. She was born in 2 hours, very healthy and a good size. She is now 2 1/2 years old and has never had any problems. I still can't give an explanation to why this happens but the end result was a beautiful healthy baby girl!!!! I hope everything goes fine for you, just take care of yourself and try not to worry too much as the stress doesn't do you or the baby any good.
