I dont think its too low. I think gradually it will pick up. Anything from 110- 180 is fine. Its a large range, dont worry.

Week 7 – Gestational Age (Fetal Age 5 Weeks)

Generally from 6 ½ -7 weeks is the time when a heartbeat can be detected and viability can be assessed. A normal heartbeat at 6-7 weeks would be 90-110 beats per minute. The presence of an embryonic heartbeat is an assuring sign of the health of the pregnancy. Once a heartbeat is detected, the chance of the pregnancy continuing ranges from 70-90% dependent on what type of ultrasound is used. If the embryo is less than 5mm CRL, it is possible for it to be healthy without showing a heartbeat, though a follow up scan in 5-7 days should show cardiac activity.

That is from american pregnancy.org

So just take it a day at a time.

It's on the lower end but still within normal range. Are they going to scan you in another week?

My baby's first heartbeat was 119 at 6w5d so I think you're fine.

My babys heartbeat was only 99 at six weeks and it really freaked ne out. Im now almost 30 weeks pregnant with a perfectly healthy baby girl. My doctor said the heartbeat is slower when it first starts beating.
