I didn’t have mine until 8 weeks (it was 160) however a friend of mine went at 6 weeks and it was 96. Her baby is totally healthy and she’s almost 17 weeks now 🙂

I went in at 6w2d and the heart rate was 125.  My dr said that I shouldn’t expect anything over 100bpm since it was still early, so she was pleased and surprised.

At 6 weeks my baby’s heartrate was 115 bmp. I googled and got worried, then I talked to the OB. SHe said it was low but normal and at that time there was nothing to worry about. I am currently 21 weeks pregnant and at every ultrasound I have had since then the baby’s heartrate has been above 150. Try not to worry to much.

Mine was 124 and I think I was 6w3d, but can’t remember how far I was. It was 178 about 6 weeks later and 165 a week after that.

@swanks4tw:  I think that number is normal.  I had mine at 6wks 5days and it was 122 and the doctor said it was normal.  I wouldnt stress it.  Eveyone’s first u/s and HR is different.  Maybe this is low for your sister, because maybe hers was taken more than 6 weeks?

@swanks4tw:  I was at the other end. I though my baby’s HB was too strong, even though the u/s tech didn’t bat an eyelash. My baby’s heat beat was…192 or 194 (the exact escapes me right this second). I was scared becuase I have never come across one that high. Hopefully it has slowed down a tish this Friday 🙂

@swanks4tw:  they didn’t tell us heart rate at 6 weeks, only saw heartbeat on u/s.  I wouldn’t worry about it. There are way too many things to worry and freak out about along the way, this shouldn’t be one of them!  If there was something wrong, your doctor would tell you.

I didn’t go in at 6 weeks. But at 8 weeks, it was 174.

At 6w5d my baby’s heartrate was 131. Sounds like yours is in the range of normal.

I think 122? 6 weeks HBs are definitely lower than HBs later in pregnancy.
