My OB detected a fetal heart rate on a doppler of 148 bpm at 9w1d. Is this normal? She did not seem concerned, however it seems that when I compare my rate with other pregnant ladies in their 8th or 9th week mine is much lower. What is a normal heart rate at 9 weeks gestation (weeks based on LMP)?
Please don't be concerned...their babies may have just finished doing gymnastics when they were doppplered....and your little prize could have been sleeping and the dr. got a 'resting' heart rate.....do not be concerned... :)
I know this is an old old post, but I thought that I might go ahead and ask. How did things turn out? I went to my doctor yesterday for my 8 week appointment and the heart rate was 143. At my 6 week appointment it was 132, so I expected it to increase more. I'm no worried b/c it seems like everyone else's is much higher at this point.
