In brief: Confirmation

Doesn't sound like anything to worry about.
..Typically we seen the heart rate at about 6 weeks. 115bpm is on the lower side of normal, but this isn't uncommon if it is right when the heart first starts beating. The doctor wants to give your baby a couple of weeks to ensure that the heart rate is normal. Likely if at the next sono the HR is around 160's, that is a great sign. Good luck!
