15 week appointment
Thu, 03-03-2011 - 9:12pm

I was terrified to go to my first appointment with my new OB today (he's actually my regular OB, but we had been going to a fertility clinic for the first trimester).

Babies' hb's change hourly. Usually it's up when they are up and more active, and slower when they are resting or sleeping. 150 is a very nice, healthy hb. :) Congrats momma! GL at your big u/s in 3 weeks. :)

Babies' HR's typically drop a bit at the end of the 1st trimester or starting at the beginning of the second trimester. Totally normal! They also sleep and wake a lot, which will also change their rates.

150 is PERFECT!! I think you're golden, sweetie. Can't wait to hear about your big ultrasound. Will you find out the gender?

Congrats Triona! {{{HUGS}}}

Congrats on a good Appt.... 150 Is a perfectly good HB.... Carsyn's HB has been right around 150 to 140 the whole time from 8 weeks to now so have no worries about that....Hope everything keeps going well =]

Congrats on a great appt, Triona! My baby girl has had a HR of about 150 at every appointment since early on, so I'm sure your LO is just fine :)
