Quick question/reassurance needed if you can please?!
I have a good doppler that every now and again use just cos it's nice to hear. Anyway was just listening and babys heartrate has pretty much always been constant of around 140-150 but have just been listening for 10mins and it kept shooting up to 189 at it's highest. It stayed between 170-189 for 2mins before going back down but it's still been higher than usual. Was around 155-160-70 for most that time.
Is this normal? What would you do if anything if you saw a lady in clinic with this??
There is natural variation - DD2's heartbeat was erratic when the GP was listening in the other day. She wasn't worried though, she just listened in for a while longer to make sure that it went back to normal, and checked that I wasn't having a contraction when it was slower (I'm nearly 32 weeks).
