FHR (Fetal Heart Rate) in Pregnancy

FHR means Fetal Heart Rate and it indicates the baby’s heart rate within the womb of the pregnant mother. The normal fetal heart rate can range anywhere from 110 to 160 BPM (Beats Per Minute) and also it can differ by 5 to 25 BPM. Fetal heart rate may increase or decrease depending upon the conditions in uterus.

It’s essential to monitor FHR (Fetal Heart Rate) during scheduled ultrasound scans as it will indicate whether the baby is normal in the pregnancy. An abnormal FHR (above >200 BPM) may indicate tachycardia whereas an low heart rate may indicate bradycardia.

It is normal to have Fetal Heart Rate for the baby above 160 BPM as it may differ from time to time and also based on the conditions of pregnant mother. The heart rate may be even above 180 BPM in some cases if there the pregnant mother is under stress or anxiety during ultrasound scans. In most cases there is nothing to worry as long as the heart beat is either above 200 BPM or below 110BPM.
