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?

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.
