    Worried about fetal heart rate!

    I'm 13 weeks today and yesterday at my appt. they said the baby's heart rate was 145. I though that sounded kind of low compared to my first baby and what I knew about gestational age and heart rate. I read somewhere that it was usually 160 at this point of pregnancy.

    Anyone else had this and had a healthy baby?

    that is a normal heart rate actually...and girls are usually the ones with a higher heart beat (150-170) and boys a lower heartbeat (130-149) but this is not EVERY baby but usually boys do have slower heart rates than girls....could be you are having a baby boy
    nothing to be concerned about perfectly normal

    I would'nt worry, the heart rate sounds very normal. My daughters heart rate fluctuated throughout my pregnancy sometimes it was in the 150's and others in the 140's. A normal heart rate is between 120 and 170.

    I wouldn't worry...especially if your doctor didn't comment on it

    I thought my wee one's was a bit low 148 but the dr assured me that it is normal. Anything between 120 and 170. It does seem alarming at first cause you would think it'd be higher.
