Each time I go to the doctor and he listens to the fetal heartrate it is about 150-160. The past couple visits it has been up to like 178-180. Has anyone else had this?? The doctor doesn't say anything except that it is a very active baby.So he doesn't seem worried.

Just curious/looking for feedback!!

You shouldn't worry. My baby's heart rate is different everytime...130s when sleeping, 140s-150s when awake, but relaxed...then above 160 when playing! Are you feeling any good kicks? Also know that the smaller the animal the higher the heartrate...example, a small dog has a higher heartrate than an elephant! You could have a smaller baby too!

AJ's highest was 176. Both the boys were pretty high actually. This one never gets above 150 and is often at 120s, and she's a girl. So there goes that myth.

Cool. Thanks to those you wrote me.
Baby is actually already 5.5-6 lbs, so it isn't small thats for sure.
I feel kicks every once and a while. Like when I'm layin down or drinking juice.
I have alot of extra fat from being overweight which makes it hard to feel movement sometimes.
But all is well.
:
Baby must be playful-but thats a greattt thing.
