    After my last misscarrige a year and a half a go...we were belssed to have this baby..yet i'm so worried...and i'm need of advice

    I just wanted to know if is it normal for Brendons' heartbeat to be 105, im really worried..i'm in week 34 and i don't think that is right...it supposed tobe much more..i measured it today using the Angle doppler..and even my babys beat..with both i coounted his hearbeat and listened to it and i don;t think it normal..it was the same count in both...what if he's like sick or something????

    Personally, I would phone your midwife or the labour ward and just explain that your doppler picked up that heartbeat rate. I'm sure if they are concerned they will get you in to be monitored asap. Babys heartbeat is always lower when they are resting so perhaps he was enjoying a nice sleep, but please, dont sit there worrying, get checked out :hugs:

    Found that, so it seems like it's not outside normal range for the gestation. I'm no doctor though, I urge you to contact your healthcare provider if you're worried. Much better safe than sorry.

    :hugs: as you get closer to full term baby's heart rate slows. But don't EVER EVER trust your Doppler, please phone your midwife. Only medical professionals can tell you it's ok. Baby is prob fine, especially if he's moving around, but always best to check it out.
    Dopplers can be great, but I believe a lot of midwives/doctors hate when you have one at home! They can be reassuring, but can also cause worry.
