Babys heartrates are higher then adults.. I am 5 1/2 months pregnant and my daughters heartrate has been between 150-170.  Her heartrate is closer to 170 when she is awake and moving around, and lower when she's sleeping. Did they tell you what your babys heartrate was?

I forgot to say CONGRATS on the pregnancy as fas as how high up the baby is. I don't know much about that, if they think you are farther along they should do an ultrasound to date the pregnancy. My baby has always been low, but my friend is 6 weeks behind me, so about 4 1/2 months also, and her baby is higher, she always feels it more in her ribs. Maybe you are just carrying higher?

It's probably just the position of your litttle one. My guy hates doplers so he squirms all over to avoid it! lol

Let's see 4 1/2 months makes you about 18wks.... Uhm.. your baby being very high up could be a number of things. How tall are you? That matters a lot. It usually nothing to worry about. Although sometimes can mean your dates are off because theoretically your uterus shouldn't be that big at 18wks. I am 22wks and my little girl sits in my ribs a lot and even at 22wks isn't supposed to be able to reach that high. I could just mean you have excess amniotic fluid also. I wouldn't worry.
