Heart Rate at 16 Weeks?

Hi All- I am 17 weeks along and so far so good. I have an at-home doppler and check the baby's heartbeat every night (I still can't feel any kicking). It's been measuring around 145-146. At my 16 week check up the doctor estimated it at 148. Just wondering how that compares with what you ladies have...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Purple- Your ultrasound sounds wonderful! How are you feeling? We are doing the first trimester screening so we will have an ultrasound at 12 weeks on the 20th but after that I will only have one at 20 weeks and that's it! With my daughter we paid to have a 4D ultrasound done at 30 weeks so we may d...

Re: Fetal dopplers- HELP!!!

Thanks for the feedback. I was afraid that was the case. And yes, I have been using lots of ultrasound gel. I tried again this afternoon and at one point the bpm jumped up to 155, then 159, then I lost it. It sounded faster but it happened so quick I couldn't get a great sense. So I am hoping that w...

Re: Fetal dopplers- HELP!!!

Hi girls. For those of you with the sonoline B dopplar, how do you know if you are hearing your hb or the baby's heartbeat? I am 10 weeks today and I have been trying but I'm not sure if it's the baby. At my8 week ultrasound the heart rate was 175 so I have been looking for something in that range. ...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Hi Ladies! Well first of all, my ultrasound with the RE yesterday was just what I needed. OMG it is absolutely amazing what a difference there was from just one week ago. At 8 weeks the baby was all snug as a bug curled up in the fetal position. Yesterday I could see its arms and legs and it was dan...

Re: OB couldn't find HB with Doppler. I'm Scared!!

Thanks ladies!! Had a scan at my RE and little bean was moving all over. Healthy as can be and measuring right on track so I'm very relieved. I am thinking I may ask my OB to forget about the doppler until he is SURE he can find something! That was too scary for me!

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Hi ladies- Quick update from me. Went for my first OB appt yesterday. He said it may be too early to hear a heartbeat with the doppler but he would try. So after a few minutes...nothing. I started freaking out and he assured me over and over it was perfectly normal, that the usual time frame to hear...

Re: OB couldn't find HB with Doppler. I'm Scared!!

Thanks Hazel! I think sometimes regular OBs just don't understand how on edge we are as IVF patients. I do have a DD from a past IVF and he was my OB and I loved him through that pregnancy so I am probably going to stay with him but it does bother me. He is just veeery laid back. Which in a way his ...

OB couldn't find HB with Doppler. I'm Scared!!

Hi all- I'm 9 weeks pregnant and yesterday was my first OB appointment. He tried to find the baby's heartbeat with a doppler and couldn't locate it so now I am freaking out. He told me that it is early and not typical to find it but sometimes he will get lucky which is why he tried. But still for so...

Can a bad stomach ache harm baby? Ghost?

I feel stupid posting this but I'm a bundle of nerves lately! Yesterday I must have ate something that didn't agree with me because I had a horrible stomach ache and cramping. I know it was my stomach because eventually after a few hours I ended up having a bowel movement (sorry TMI) and after that ...

Hey girls! I am finally finding a moment to post and there is lots to catch up on! Kitty- I agree that the 2ww for ultrasound is so hard. I honestly found it harder than waiting for my beta. I'm on yet another 2ww right now for my second ultrasound. I am running out of patience!! Mev- Welcome! And c...

Heart rate was 120. Does that sound about right? Anyone know what heart rates are expected at this point? The Dr seeme...
