fetal heart rate at 6 weeks
heart rate is at 125. The dr scared the crap out of me and told me it should be above 140, however when i search forums of others who are/were the same 6 week time frame as i... their fetal heart rate was about the same as mine. What is everyone else reading? Im very nervous.

Re: fetal heart rate at 6 weeks
6 weeks is super early for the heart rate. My understanding is unless the u/s is super sensitive it can't really read heart rate well, and you really can't hear it on a doppler until closer to 12 weeks.

My midwife was ok with anything over 130.

Re: fetal heart rate at 6 weeks

I just went in on Tuesday and the nurse scared the crap out of me. Im 7 weeks and they told me the heart rate was 124. They want me to come back next Tuesday to see "if it will go up" but everything I looked at says thats normal. I called the drs office the next day and talked to the nurses partner and she said I was in the normal range just at the lower end of the range. I which they would watch their wording because it makes a huge difference. Keeping my fingers crossed.
