awwwwwwwwwwww Im soooooooo sorry sweetie! I dont know anything about this... but I would think hopefully it will get stronger as it gets older? I could be TOTALLY WRONG! but I would think that would be the case... I was told you shouldnt be able to hear the hb until your 7 weeks... so maybe thats it! Im sorry either way thats just not fun to have to worry about! HUGE SUPER DUPER FREAKING BIG FAT GIANT MONSTER HOOKER FANGBANGER

(((HUGS))) I know it is hard not to worry...some babies just take a little longer to get going. Mine have all been a little slow. I hope that when you go back for your next u/s he or she is doing great!

Babies start out with slower HB and then they pick up. At 7 weeks with my son his HR was about 80 BOM, then the next week it was 180BPM! Try not to worry too much!

I hope everything will look perfect at the next u/s! Sounds like it can be totally normal for the HB to be a little slow.

Sorry dear, sending prayers your way. I am sure baby will be fine. Mine always measure couple of days behind but they arrive couple of days before due date with good enough weight too. Praying next u/s will reveal strong HB.

Sisters, friends forever

Aww, I"m sorry...praying for your little one too! If you are unsure of your conception date, I'm willing to bet your days are just off At 6w1d, the baby's heartbeat WOULD be low....then closer to 7 weeks it picks up and then it gets really fast. If you truly were 6w5d then you might would expect a little bit of a faster heart rate, BUT if your really only 6w1d...then he/she probably just hasn't gotten to that point yet. (((((Hugs)))))) this trimester is SO stressful, I know

So sorry! you are in my thoughts and prayers! I would just take it real easy, lay around and watch tv or read, anything that isn't stressful, take your vitamins, eat when your hungry and never fight sleep because sleep is when your body repairs itself. Good luck hun.

So sorry you're stressed. Are you certain of your dates? And what was the heart rate? I have been in this situation before and it was just so stressful. Are you having a repeat u/s in a week?
