I'm 12 weeks tomorrow, and bub had a FHR of 184 this arvo. It worried me so I used the Doppler again tonight and had a FHR of 175. I even counted myself both times to make sure.
I'm a little freaked out coz it was 155 a few days ago... Is there a cause for concern?
Most of the stuff on the net says average at 12 wks is 120-160 bpm.. The occasional reference says 120-180bpm. Anyone else had high FHR?

Hey there! In my opinion I wouldn't think that's too high for a FHR. Mine at 7w was around 165 & every time we had it measured during the pregnancy it fluctuated between 135 - 170bpm. all the best :-)

When bub is more active, the heart rate goes up. I've heard it's a good sign to have fluctuating foetal heart rates. If you are concerned or feel something is not right... speak to your care provider.
All the best!
