Pregnant, ultrasound shows heart rate of 119 bpm. Is this normal ?

I've worked in obstetrics for over 10 years. I have 1 living, 1 missed and am currently 7 wks 6 days pregnant. I had an u/s and was approximately 6 wks and 5 days with a fetal heart rate of 119 bpm. Is this normal? I am trying not to worry with the knowledge I have of threatened abortion, but I'm human. What advice can you give?

Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Normal fetal heart rate at this age is 120-160 beats per minute.
By definition it is bradycardia but there may be variation 0f 5-15 beats per minute. so, repeat it.
You don't have other symptoms like vaginal bleeding or abdominal cramps ,so don't worry at all.

Take care

Im 19 weeks pregnant 5 9 and my resting heart rate is 96bpm is this normal or should I be worried? I have had an enormous amount of stress the past few weeks which have caused me to not eat and be throwing up.

Hi, my wife has a history of one case of terminated pregnancy. This was one year back. She is pregnant again with 6 weeks pregnancy. Her PTT levels were little raised and she had ecosprin for 2 months before pregnancy. The doctor did her ultrasound and we saw the fetal node with heartbeat. THe heartbeat was 114 bpm. My question is, is this heartbeat normal? Should taking ecosprin or baby aspirin (81 mg) be okay or have any improvements? Can that harm in any way? she doesn t have any allergies to any medicines, also her bp is normal. She has thyroid and currently taking 75 mcg dose.

Hi, I recently fell pregnant - 5 weeks. I went for an internal scan as I was spotting brown discharge and mild cramps. The sac was lower in the womb than expected and I was told this was due to a possible miscarriage. I now have to wait 2 weeks for another scan to see if there has been any change. I have since the scan, spotted red clots and the brown stuff seems to be getting worse but have no pains. Do you think I am definitely going to loose my baby?
