I went in for an US to see if we could determine the sex at 14w5d (we couldn't-umbilical cord was in the way) and the baby had a heartrate of 172. Just curious what the range is here. That's faster than my other babies at this time. They were all in the 150-160s.

Mine was 162 at 13w 3d, but that modest little one refused to open up its legs, so the gender is still very much a mystery!

At 14 weeks: 150

These are estimations from the doppler- haven't had an ultrasound yet.

Next appointment is in a week & a half, around 18 weeks.

My doctor doesn't give me numbers, for better or worse, but.....I have a home doppler and the heartbeat tends to fluctuate from 135-150, given the day and time. I am 16 weeks today and have had the doppler not quite two weeks.

I dunno, haven't heard the heartbeat yet. I try to hear with my fetoscope a couple times a week, but nothing yet. I will be 14 weeks on Saturday.

This reminds me of Away We Go, where John Krasinsky () keeps startling his partner, then jumping in with a doppler to measure the baby's heartrate, since it had been lower than 140.

I was 11w4d at my last appt, I think, and the Doppler got a reading a 155 for a second, and then 164 a minute later. This baby has been difficult to find on Doppler...we can actually hear it swimming away I'm going to ask my mw to attempt the fetoscope at my next appt.

I soooo want to hear my baby's heartbeat. At my 11 week appointment the Dr. couldn't find it. I was so looking forward to my 15 week appointment this Thursday, but now we've got to go out of town, so I had to reschedule it Now I'll be 16 weeks before I even hear it. This waiting is killing me!! I still don't really feel secure in the pregnancy because I still haven't heard the heartbeat. I really want to start telling people about this baby.

170's at 13.5 weeks. I thought that was fast but the m/w said it was what she would expect.

Got to hear the heartrate for the first time today....152....16weeks.
This was the first time I've actually been to the midwife for an apt. Been busy interviewing and choosing a provider. Very relieved to hear a strong heartbeat. Although I'm "measuring" really small. Uterus measures only 10weeks heartbeat placement about 14weeks. But I am positive on my dates....clearly I need to eat more
