Is it normal for baby's heart rate to drop? Any midwives want to add input!
Hi ladies , i'm popping over from 1st tri but i ill be joining you later on this week or next week anyway but figured my question would be better in here due to how far I am.
Anyway, as the question asks really. Reason for asking is, when I first found baby's heartbeat at 9+3 it was about 175bpm, at 10 weeks or so it went to 165bpm then tonight, at 12+4 its between 157 and 161bpm.
Does that sound normal? Does it keep dropping slightly as it gets bigger?
Never had the opportunity to listen so regularly before, and as beautiful a sound it is it's also quite worrying when it drops - even slightly...
