I've smoked all through my pregnancy, and my little one is fine. His heart rate was normal, but couldn't be heard until I was 11 weeks. Before then they could never find it. Maybe it's because you are so early still, just go back in a week or so and have it checked again. X
I too smoked throughout my pregnancies. Both babies came out perfectly healthy. No asthma, no withdrawal, perfect weight. :)
I'm actually scared to quit because I did in my last pregnancy and seriously a week later I miscarried.. Now I'm 15 weeks and five days, and bubs is doing fine!!
I had the same, my first 2 pregnancies I quit smoking, and miscarried both times. This time I didn't even know it was pregnant. I'm not blaming the quitting for the miscarriage because I was told I'd never have kids, but this time I carried on as I normally would and he is perfect. :)
I don't know for sure, as my clinic here wouldn't see me until I was 10 weeks, and at that time, my baby's heart beat was 160 bpm at exactly 10 weeks. I did some research and got back pretty much similar results and numbers from different sources...
5 Weeks starts at 80 and ends at 103 bpm
6 Weeks starts at 103 and ends at 126 bpm
7 Weeks starts at 126 and ends at 149 bpm
8 Weeks starts at 149 and ends at 172 bpm
9 Weeks 155-195 bpm
12 Weeks 120-180 bpm
So sounds to me that your baby's heart rate Is where It should be. I'm glad your tryin' to cut down for the sake of your baby's health. =-]
Ugh...the bleeped out Is: a m e r i c a n p r e g n a n c y

Your babies heart rate would have been slower because it is just developing, your next app. they may check it again to make sure. I know everytime I go in (I'm in Canada) they use the doppler to listen to his heart to make sure he is doing fine everytime I go in at both my normal dr. And now my OB
Oh and my babies heart rate was 140 - 145 until I was six months it wnt down to 130 - 135 and the dr. Said it was fine he is growing right. And I am a smoker too.
