    I saw the midwife this morning and she documented the hb as 150-167bpm and asked if i had rushed up to the clinic??? I thought that this was about normal for LO, its always been 140-160ish, if anyone has any reassurance that would be good as i'm starting to doubt myself! She didnt say there was a problem but the way she asked if i'd rushed made me worry!

    I wouldn't worry. Is it the same MW that you normally see?

    She probably just wasn't sure how it normally ran until she looked in your file. I was always told that 160 was still safe. Sometimes baby is just extra busy, plus the doppler makes a loud sound in there, so if baby was already getting his/her cardio in, and then the doppler came on, with it usually being fast... it really isn't a bad heartrate.

    the average is meant to be between 110-150 if your resting, but then babys h.rate goes up with yours if your running about or being more active.

    At every appointment my son's HB has been right around 150; it was the same with my first. I'm sure nothing's wrong!
