Just got back from my 32 week appointment. His heartbeat was 172, which is higher than it has ever been (it's never been above 160 from what I can remember). Nobody seemed concerned, but it still made me fell uneasy. Is it normal for baby's heartbeat to be randomly high?
The rest of the appointment was uneventful. I lost 3lbs and gained 3cm since my appointment 2 weeks ago. Since my m/s has been so bad I'm going to try eating a lot of iron rich foods and stop taking the supplement. Hopefully it'll be enough to get me back into normal range

Hmm, you know I didn't even ask her what the number was at my last appointment. I'll have to see what it's at tomorrow. But if the doctor's aren't concerned then I would think everything is ok. I'm sure they'd be looking into it if they were at all worried.

Nope, nothing to worry about! Generally girls' heartrates are up there in the 170s (I know Kaylee's was the whole time last pregnancy) so I am sure there is nothing to worry about! They would have told you if it was a problem!
