    hiya all, i have got a doppler and i was just wondering what babys heart rate should be as it sounds fast so i timed it 10 secs, then i timesd it by 6 so you get heart rate per minute it was 168, dnt know if it is high or low, some times it sounds like a galopping hourse, then it souds fast, like faster then what im normally used to, i listen to it every day as i have bleed since i was around 12wks and since then i have has 5 days break, with no blood what so ever. your answers will be much appriciated, xx

    Well I just heard mine and it was 140, and I think it starts faster and slows down towards the time of birth. So its probably about right :)

    Mine was 162 (I found it today with my new doppler so I feel the need to tell the world and make them listen to it haha). Old wives tales may say you are having a girl as the rate is quite high (not abnormally but higher up in the range). x x x

    I think the usual range is 120-160 but when the baby moves it will go up a little bit. Hope this helps.

    168 is fine, must be girl! They say over 140 (or some say 150) is a girl, below is a boy. Also depends whether they are asleep or awake. Mine ranges from 150-160 maybe I'm having a girl too x

    It's not abnormal. My baby's heart rate was 160, as I was told, the only time I got a number from my doctor... I think that was around 14 weeks. Monday, at my 4D ultrasound, the tech told me his heart rate was around 140. So, it dropped. I also heard it was supposed to be higher at earlier stages, but I don't know if that's quite true.
