Could Not Find Heartbeat

me - October 26

I am 11 and a half weeks pregnant and the Dr. could not locate the fetus's heartbeat with a dopplar because of all the noise my stomach made. She did find the fetus on an ultrasound, but I have to go back in 2 weeks to try the dopplar again. Has this happened to anyone? Should I be concerned?

I am rather thin so he didnt seem to have problems finding the heart. my stomach makes more than average noise (I am serious .. it has always made the most noise of anyone I know) but it didnt seem to cause any problems. I do think it matters on how much fat/meat there is there.

I was on the think side before this pregnancy and I have gained a lot so far, but am still close to the normal range. The doctor did not express any concern about my weight.

Did they see the heartbeat on the ultrasound?

They saw the heartbeat on the 1st ultrasound (9 weeks) at the radiology place, but I think the ultrasound at the Dr.'s office is so small all she could see was the moving fetus.

2 weeks sounds like a long time to wait. I would insist on something sooner. I am sure you will be fine though.

I went in at 11 weeks also and the doctor couldn't hear the heart beat. He got kind of nervous and immediately sent me to get an ultrasound. Turns out my uterus is very back posterior. But there was a little baby! I would call and make an appt. to get an ultrasound. Just to sooth your nervous.
