    Default 5 week heartbeat

    Did your babys heartbeat get detected at 5weeks 2days? Is 80 beats/per/minutes considered slow for this gestational age?

    I spoke to my dr about this yesterday and she said at 4 weeks unlikely to see anything, 5 weeks you will prob see sack, 6 weeks you could possibly see a heartbeat but at 7 weeks you would defo see the heart beat. Good luck but I am holding out on my scan until 6-7weeks. Btw I am 4 weeks 2 days ATM.

    We heard DS heart beat at 5 weeks as well and was around 80bpm, the sonographer said was low because it would only just have started beating
    DS is now a very active 20 month old

    Don't google pregnancy stuff it's always going to freak you out haha

    No problems.
    But if you sack measured 5w2d, wouldn't that mean you are 7w2d pregnant going by date of LMP.

    I was thinking the same thing...it would have only just started beating, which probably explains the low rate.
    If it worries you, you could always get a scan in a few weeks to see whether it's at a "normal" rate.

    technically anything under 100 is considered on the lower side,BUT most ppl do not even get a heartbeat at 5wks so I honestly wouldn't stress if I was you.

    The heart normally starts beating at 5ish weeks and will increase over time. We detected bubs heartbeat at 6+4 it was 129. At 12+1 it was 170ish i think??

    I wouldn't stress, a think any HB that early is a good thing.

    When is your next scan.

    It's a perfectly normal heart rate at that gestation.

    Hi,

    With DD I didn't get a heartbeat until 7 weeks, I had a scan right on 5 weeks and just had a sac, nothing else.

    Yes that is fine for 5 weeks odd. It starts off at around 80 beats per minute.
