I had on ultrasound on Wednesday (we are having a baby BOY!!!!) and Baby seemed pretty sleepy and not very active. But what worries me is that his heart rate was only 127 bpm. Whenever I've heard it before, it's always been between 150-160 bpm, so 127 really worries me. Do you think it was just because he was resting? The tech didn't seem worried, but... I am.

I wouldn't be too worried, heart rates vary and that is within the normal "range".

If he was resting, and it's within normal range, I wouldn't worry either. Especially if it seems to be higher when he is active <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

crashing from march's DDC. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My baby heart rate is usually in the 140's to 150's but has been as low as 120 when she's sleeping.

I wouldn't worry. DS usually had a really low heart rate every time we checked except when I had just had a major sugar indulgence <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Maybe you just got a nice and mellow kid in there who likes to sleep. Not a bad thing.
