Low heart rate.

I went for my first ultrasound today. According to my lmp, I should be 6w2d but I am measuring 5w4d. Not a huge diference but enouph to make the heart rate an issue. The baby's heart rate was 103. The tech said that anything over 100 is ok, however they would rather it be 120 or higher.
I know I just have to wait until Monday for another ultrasound, but I am stressing out. I had a mc in Feb at 7weeks and all of this seems just too familiar.
Thanks for letting me vent...

Thanks guys! I am feeling a little better tonight. I read some stuff on the net and having your support really helps.
Worrying cant be good for the baby so I am really working on calming down!
Thank you all for the kind words.
Ill keep you posted.

Tricia,

Women at our age often ovulate at different times than is predicted. The date of my last period had me ovulating a full week after what I had to have ovulated according to all of my ultrasounds. 103 is normal for 5 wks 4 days. I know its easier said than done, but try not to worry.

Hi Tricia,


I know I've seen online somewhere a chart of what the normal heart rate is in the early weeks of pregnancy but I can't find it now.

I wish I could help you more, I can say that I wish you the best of luck, I know waiting for answers is the worst thing ever. I know its hard but try not to stress over it, since that isn't good for you or baby. IM sorry about your past mc. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
