Hey ladies sorry about the late update I passed out trying to type after my appointment because I worked last night...but there's still a heartbeat so yay on that!!! But it's slower than when I had the u/s two weeks ago its now in the 140s around 145 my doctor isn't worried so I guess I shouldn't be either. Next appointment is next month and they are doing the birth defect blood test

I was just reading that heartbeats are faster in the beginning but slow down as the pregnancy progresses. I can't remember the exact range but you are in it

That's great! I asked my doc about heartrate, because he's just been looking on ultrasound and not giving the rate. He told me he quit doing that long ago because it's highly inaccurate to count unless you have the machine do it (can easily be off 20+ bpm). He said he's done it long enough that he can just tell by looking if things are unhealthily slow or fast. I guess I'm telling you in case you wanted an informal second opinion that it sounds like there's nothing to worry about

Great appointment! The heartbeat definitely does slow down toward the end of the first trimester, and a hr around 140 is perfect. Also, my doctor said the hr can fluctuate a lot even minute to minute, let alone day to day. My RE initially refused to even give a heart rate... he would just say that a heartbeat was present or absent. When I pushed him to tell me the rate, only then did they measure it, and he said anything above 120 was good, and 120-180 was normal. We measured it around 160, and he said that it meant absolutely nothing, because in an hour it could be 170, and an hour later 140. So don't worry about it being a little lower today!!!

Awesome news! For my bean when they first saw the heartbeat I was told it was 125, which I thought was slow but there didn't seem to be any concern.

I know in general by babies heart rates have been anywhere from 125-180
