I had my 17th week check up and the the fetal heart rate was 147 bpm then I went in for my 18th week sonogram and the fetal heart rate dropped to 117 bpm I'm having a boy should I be concerned about the heart rate drop ina week or could it just be because the baby was sleeping during the sonogram please help new mommy and very worried ???

Was the doctor concerned? Fetal heart rate can vary every time you check it. Was it 117 the whole exam? Or was that simply the rate that was documented?

The lady that did the sonogram only checked the heart rate once to document it she didn't seem too concerned she just said the baby was probably sleeping but I still was a little worried because it's never been that low
