148 beats per minute

Just curious what all of your babies heart rates were at about 10 weeks. My babies heartbeat is 148 beats per minute. Not sure if that is good or not, but would like to hear what all of your beats were.

Is 148 a little slow??

Also, any idea when I will be able to hear the heartbeat on the doppler that I bought? I check it almost everynight hoping to hear something and get disappointed each time. :-)

Wow, I had a monster. at 10weeks 1 day she had a heart rate of 184. I also had a fever that day and was at the hospital.

I think you hb is fine.  I would leave the doppler alone until at least 14-16 weeks.  And your baby does not like the doppler, apparently it makes a horrendous loud noise in the womb, so I would limit the use.

My baby's was 168 but 148 is fine.  I'd only be worried if it was in the 120's or under.

they start out all over the place and vary so much. your baby could have been at rest with that number. i'm sure it is fine.

i also agree with the above poster about leaving the doppler alone for a bit.

around 12-14 weeks you can hold the probe at the very bottom of your tummy and try angling around slowly. just don't point to high or you'll hear your own heart.lol

the general consensus i have been told is to use it no more than twice a week and never longer than ten minutes at a time.they seem to upset the baby.

When I was 7wks my babies hb was in the 160's. Now it stays in the 140's and has for months. It's fine as long as its above 120. I use a doppler too, but would chill out on it till u hit 14-16wks or so. Yeah, they say no more than 1-2 times a wk and no more than 10mins at a time. I was having some issues this wk so i probably used it like 4times and im sure the doctor will tomorrow when i go in, but i need to chill out on it. And I only use it for just a sec so I can find her hb and be done with it.

My little guy's was 114 at 7 weeks. At 11 weeks, I am thinking it was 168. Since then it has been mostly in the 150's and 140's. Last few appts. it was in low 140's. 148 is just fine for 10 weeks! :) Don't worry!

My baby's heart beat is always from 139-148 (I have a doppler, and use it daily).  My dr. said that ANYTHING between 120-170 is normal.  There is absolutely no concern.  I am 21 weeks.
