Brief history: I m/c seven months ago. I conceived on the exact date the first one was supposed to be born. The ultrasound showed a six week old baby. And I was so happy! There was a little heart beat, at 120 bpm. The tech. thought that was kind of slow, but told me not to worry. In a way I am not worried just because I consider myself lucky to have seen a heartbeat at all this early. On the other hand I am curious to know what is normal for a baby of six weeks and am a bit concerned. Can anyone tell me what is normal for this age?
I am not sure about what the beets per minute should be, but congratulations on your pregnancy. I miscarried in January and I was Due September 25 which was my faters birthday. I had my first Dr. appointment to confirm this pregnancy on that same day, September 25. I am 14 weeks and so far so good this time. Good luck to you.
At 6w 1d my baby's heartbeat was measuring 118, so I was really freaked out since that's not even in the 120-160 range, but I'm 26 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl so things turned out fine. That early the heart is just starting to beat and figuring things out.
Hi, Congratulations!! I remember you from the "other" forum. We both had a miscarriage in March and only 3 AF's since then!! When I saw you got a BFP, I was so happy and have been hoping your us went well. 120 sounds really good to me. For my 1st preg. that I lost in March the hb was 85 at 6 weeks and the us tech said 110 and up is good. Well, have a great 7 1/2 more months!! I have been dianosed with PCOS and will start Clomid in a few weeks. I hope to join you in BFP land soon! ~ Justine
Okay now i am nervous I am reading what you have written on all of your comment spaces, and I am a first time soon to be mom and i am 11 weeks 6 days along, I had my first apt. last friday and I was told that my Babys heartbeat is going at 170- 175 BPM. Should I be worried or is the chance of there being more than one more likely and the doctor was getting both their heartbeats?- Mrs. SQ
