I had my first ultrasound today and we saw the baby and its little beating heart. They said the heart rate ranged from 120-130. They said everything looks great. I dont know that just seems a little low to me. With both my girls their heart rates were always in the 160's.

My youngest son's HR was consistently in the 120s-130s almost the entire time throughout my whole pregnancy. Once it was even 115 :shock: I was always worried, but the doctor never was. My older son's HR was always 150s-160s.

As long as it's above 110, you're fine. Babies heartrates go up and down, just like ours. When we sleep, it lowers. When we're active, it raises.

120-160 base line is normal with variations (acceleration/decelerations) of 20bmp. if it goes below 100 there is a problem if it goes above 185 it a cause for concern MOST of the time.

I think I remember anything above 100 at this point is good. It should get a little faster the further along you get.
