Ultrasound update and heart beats per minute
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.

They like to see the heartbeats between 120 to 160 at your stage so it sounds ok to me.

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.

At six weeks, my babies were 117 and 116 beats per minute, which the doctor said was "perfect."

I went in for a sono at 7 weeks. They thought my dates might be off by a week making me 6 weeks. The heart rate was 93 and I had a healthy baby girl. I am sure you are fine.

Its freaky the way things work out...  I had a miscarriage diagnosed on 1/3 and a D&C on 1/5.  I have a healthy baby boy due on 1/11..  

Your baby's heart beat is on the slow end of PERFECT so dont worry.. maybe s/he was resting up for the growth spurt.  :)  Congratulations and have a happy healthy 8 more months!!

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

At 6 weeks my babie bpm was 90. They said this is exactly what they would expect at this stage. I guess every Dr.'s range of "normal" differs. This is my third pregnancy and third baby!
