Normal HR: Normal heart rate at around 8 weeks. A normal HR at 8 weeks is a good sign but is not a good predictor of long term issues/survival. Take good care of yourself and work with your OB/GYN closely over the coming months and ask lots of questions. A new baby is an both an exciting and scary time. Good luck.
