My baby's heartbeat was 166bpm at 7weeks and 5days. I don't really care what my baby is. I just hope it's healthy. I already have a boy and a girl.

Our baby's hb was 149 at 7w3d.  We don't really have a preference since it's our first, as long as he/she is healthy we are a happy family!

what was the beats per minute? Mine was 158 at 8 weeks. The tech said this was normal. She said it should be between 120-180. But I have read different numbers on other websites.

I had another ultrasound at 9 weeks and 6 days (Today I am 10 weeks and 6 days). On Baby A hb was 168 and Baby B hb was 162.

Thanks Nini, I read on the internet that it gets stronger so my next scan should be a lot higher at 8.5 weeks. I am sure its okay I just had a moment of panic - the doctor said it was normal at the time so I am believing him!
Yours looks great for 8 weeks though good luck.

At 7 weeks 1 day the baby's hb was 144.  At the exact time when I was pregnant with Gavin, my son, his hb was 121.  I am thinking it might be a girl, but the pregnancy is very similar to my pregnancy with my son.  I just want a heathly baby.

just updating from above at my scan today 8 weeks 4 days the hb was 179 bpm so proves it gets stronger over time. I read it increases by 3 beats a day until a certain time.
