I am worrying myself silly!! I have a home doppler by belly beats & I am currently 36+4 wks preggo. My baby's HB goes from 112-125 on an average... is this normal towards the end?
Thanks for any input.

Gosh I don't know if thats normal. Sometimes I wonder how accurate the doppler is on HR (I have one also). I Know if mine were reading like that especially if it hasn't in the past I would DEFINITLY call in. Let us know what they say. Jewels

120-160 is considered normal. What was it before? I am sure everything is fine, but to ease your mind I would call your OB. There is always something to worry about while pregnant, then you worry more once the baby is born. Congrats you're almost there!!Married to my rock ttc 5 1/2 years

I do think they baby's heartrate slows down as you get close to delivery, but I would recommend checking with your OB, just to make sure it is within the normal range for this time. Good luck with your upcoming delivery!me,34 DH,50

Yes, it is normal!! It is true, that "generally" normal rates are from 120-170bpm (from the American Pregnancy Association), in the end, the rate drops. A past due baby (perfectly healthy) may drop to around 110.
The activity level defiantly has something to do with it too. If you really are worried, though, I wouldn't hesitate to call your doc. It's what they are there for. You may ask him the question, "At what point should I worry/call?"
If, however, the heartrate drops below 90min for greater than 1 minute, call your Dr. ASAP and INSIST on an ultrasound/emergency appointment. This kind of deceleration is noticed at night, right before you lay down to sleep and could mean distress. Yours are nowhere near that low, so I wouldn't worry.
Are you doing ""kick counts?" Because that would be, perhaps, a good, if not better, indication of how baby is doing. That link even has a handy little chart to print out to keep track.
