I had a trans vaginal ultrasound Monday that showed the baby to be at 10mm CRL, dating the pregnancy at 7.3 weeks. The heart rate was at 99-111 bpm - is this a normal heart rate for 7.3 weeks of pregnancy?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Generally from 6 Â½ -7 weeks is the time when a heartbeat can be detected and viability can be assessed. A normal heartbeat at 6-7 weeks would be 90-110 beats per minute. So it is completely normal at this gestational period. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
