Hi all, I went to the doctor to get baby's heart beat checked with a doppler last week (I was worried as didn't feel it, went to a different doctor than my usual).
It showed a heart beat of 154.
I went to my GP today for a check up and she checked the heart beat which was 134.
Really worried now that something is wrong. Anyone else out there had a similar result?
I'm 17 weeks on Tuesday.

I think 'normal' fetal heartrate is anywhere from 120-180bpm. I'm pretty sure a bit of variation is common, they have periods of quiet and periods of lots of movement so that would affect their heartrate. I'm nearly 21 weeks and at my check ups bubs heartrate has varied between 140-155bpm.

Fetal heart rate increases to week 9 and then decreases. It can range between 120 and 180, and it can go up and down (for instance if your baby is sleeping).

As long as the heart rate is still within the normal range, it is fine As the posters above said it can vary depending on what bub has been up to in there, and I have also read that it can be affected even by what you have eaten (I guess too much sugar would get bub a bit hyped up lol)

thanks for the encouraging words everyone. I'm hopeful all will be fine
