7 weeks and baby's heart rate only 120! ???


Hello ladies, I am so very confused and worried. A week ago I woke up bleeding, a lot, red clumps and etc. We went to the E.R. and after 5 hours in a hallway! (it was awful) the Dr. came out and told me the babies heart rate was only at 97 and with the bleeding chances are I was having a MC. (Yes, he told me that in the hallway while I was lying on the bed numbered 15 in front of everyone else....again, awful) Spent all weekend crying, although the bleeding did ease up. Went in on Monday for a scan and there was my bean! The heart rate was at 120, better, but not great. It is supposed to be around 140-150. The Dr. who I saw is not my Dr. and was just working me in. She did not say much and said, well a 120 is better than a 97. She also did not measure it to see if it measured 7 weeks (I had a scan the week before and my Dr. said we have a heart beat and it was measuring perfect.) What does that mean!!!!! Has anyone else had a scan and a low heart rate???? Thanks!!!

Does anyone have any info about the average heat rate? I had a scan at 8+2 and heart beat was a whopping 179 and I think thats really high so I'm a little worried.

I would have said thats ok. I think they worry us far too much while we are pregnant, they seem to forget that we panic over every tiny little thing.......
