Had a scan today and bubs heart rate is 115bpm at 6 weeks 6days- I thought it was on the low side but my obs didn't seem to concerned he said that it will increase in a few days.
Does anyone know what the range should be and is this low?

Is this heart rate normal?

Im not sure for six weeks and if it changes as the pregnancy gets along but I would say that looks alright. DS's heart rate was always between 120 and 135 bpm and he's a healthy 5 month old now.( His heart beat was only ever checked after 20 weeks) so I'm not sure of the range for 6 weeks if theyre different, but I would say that if the OB didnt say anything about it being a concern then its perfectly normal. Good luck with your pregnancy!!!

Thanks.. I'm just seeing so many varied rates on the net around that time so im just a little confused. Maybe it's different for everyone?!

Yeah there are so many factors sometimes like the baby resting or fast asleep or bouncing around and I do think its quite different for every baby. I know I freaked out and googled heart rates when I saw on my notes that DS's heart rate was 120 bpm and it got me nowhere...I ended up being more confused after I got off google than when I first started researching!!! Then I came to the conclusion that surely the midwife would have said something if it was too slow, in fact when they took his heartbeat throughout my pregnancy they always said it was perfect so Im not sure what my problem was . Hopefully somebody else here can put your mind at ease as well, its hard not to worry!!
