Fetal Heart Rate At 21 Weeks’ Gestation?
I want to ask … I’m 21 weeks pregnant yesterday I just checked into my fetal heart rate puskesmas 158 / minute it’s dangerous no yes to my fetus. And how do I normalize my fetal heartbeat. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
Normal fetal heart rate is in the range of 120-160 times per minute. Monitoring fetal heart rate is important especially during the birth process to assess whether there is interference with oxygenation in the fetus. The fetal heart rate is much faster than in adults, but this is very normal. Along with the development of the heart and increasing age of the child the heart rate will decrease after outside the womb.
To maintain the health of the fetus in the womb, pregnant women must be able to meet the nutritional needs for fetal development. The psychological and emotional condition of the mother can also affect the rapid heartbeat of the fetus, so that pregnant women are not easily stressed and calm the mind. Perform routine pregnancy checks until the time for delivery.
That's all, hope you can help.
