No: Who told you that 130-140 is slow? Do not believe them, and if you're getting your info from the internet - do yourself a favor and stop. Normal fhr in the first trimester can be anywhere from about 120-170 or so, and that's all pregnancies not just ivf. Good news!

Normal: While it is understandable to be worried after all you have been through to get pregnant, you are overthinking this one. Try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy and congrats!
