don't stress out until you have your u/s and have some answers. you usually can hear a heart beat as early as 8 weeks but some take up to 12. Good luck!

Hi tara if your dr. was only "listening" for a heartbeat, it is very possible she just missed it. No need to worry yet. Your ultrasound will give you some answers.

Tara- I went for a early u/s at 5.5 days due to spotting and my tech picked up the heart beat at 117. I went back a week later to make sure the heart beat went up and it did to 150 at 6.5 weeks. The first u/s was done by v____al. My second was she tried on my tummy but couldnt hear it so I had another v____al u/s done. I would not worry until at all....everyone is different..maybe your little bean is playing hard to get..lol or hear....I would just wait for your u/s...this will help clear up everything..I am currently 10.5 weeks prego and I do not go back until I am 12 weeks...I am praying that they can find a heart beat again...dont worry, things will be just fine!! =) good luck and keep us posted on your u/s results.

hi, i heard a heartbeat at 7 weeks. does your Dr have a real old machine? mine was heard with an u/s. i think if the Dr has a real old machine they can't detect it very easy. good luck!

I heard my heartbeat at 6 weeks with an ultrasound and 9 weeks with a doppler

We have seen the heartbeat at 6 weeks and heard the heartbeat for the first time 2 days ago i am 12 weeks. Give it another week you will probably pick it up next week there is nothing wrong as long as there is heartbeat your fine. We rented a doppler and do it every night and it was amazing we would just pick up the heart rate then like i said 2 days ago we all of a sudden heard it and did it yesterday same thing.

I was 11 weeks and heard the heartbeat yesterday. It took her a little bit to find it and she had to push way down in there to get to it. Sometimes the baby is just too stubborn to let you hear it just yet. Don't be worried, its normal.

It all depends on how they were trying to hear the h/b. I was able to hear mine at 7w5d but that was by using the audio from the v____al u/s. I know it is much much later for the doppler and even if you do get lucky and have the baby in the right position to hear it on the dopler early, the next time you try you might not hear anything. That little bean is so small at this stage in your pg, it is very easy to miss it like PP said.

HI TARA THIS IS SUE, I WON'T WANT TO SCARE YOU OR BREAK UR HEART BUT I HAD AN U/S DONE AT 11 WKS B/C THEY DIDN'T HEAR IT AND THEY TOLE ME THE BABY DIED AT 9WKS, BUT I HAD A D/C AND I'M PREGNANT AND SCARED AND I AM 7 WKS. MY U/S WILL BE ON THE 16TH AND I'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES. BUT LISTEN TO THE OTHER GIRLS,EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT.

Hi taraleej, I am a__suming the dr used a doppler to pick up the heartbeat. If she did that, sometimes it is hard to pick it up till around the 12 week mark although sometimes they can pick it up earlier. If she used an ultrasound, you should ideally have been able to see the heartbeat on the screen

At my 12w appt my doc couldn't hear it with the doppler so she did a quick u/s check with the portable and everything was fine. I'm now 16w and we have a happy healthy little baby in there!

HI! I know this is a little late but I still have not heard the heart beat of our little one. I am 15 weeks along and at my last appointment, which was a couple of weeks ago....I had a very tilited uterus so he thought that may be the reason he didn't hear anything. So they did a quick U/S and every thing is great. I have another appoinment next thursday so I am HOPING, I hear the little beans beat!
