What is a normal fetal heart rate?

Is 156 a normal heart rate for a baby who is 33 weeks along. My baby's heart rate is normally around 145- 148. At my last visit it was 156. Is this normal?

MM

Dear MM,

A normal fetal heart rate is anywhere from 120-160. The heart rate will often be somewhat higher if the baby is moving at the time the heart rate is measured. That is a good sign.

Sincerely,
Amy
