What is a normal heart rate for 6weeks? Should I be worried?

Hi Alex,
I went for a dating scan this morning and the sonographer put us at 6 weeks (going by my dates I had 5+6 anyway) he measured the heart rate at 106 and said it was a little low. What is a normal heart rate for 6weeks? Should I be worried? Is a low heart rate a sign of increased chance of miscarige?

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, A baby’s heart really only starts beating at around 6 weeks. Try not to worry this is fine. Best wishes, Alex
