Heartbeat Found At 6 Weeks But No Heartbeat At 8 Weeks

I went to the doctor's today and I will be 9 weeks on Friday. The doctor put the heartbeat monitor on my stomach and she couldn't find the heartbeat. However, when I was 6 weeks(actually 2 weeks ago today), I had a transva___al sonogram and they found the fetus with a heart rate of 120 bpm. I was wondering if anyone else has had this happened? It's very scary to know that something may have happened but don't know for sure. She said it may still be too early to pick it up on the heartbeat monitor.

I wouldn't worry...often you can't hear the heart beat on the monitor....but you can see it on the sonogram. Did they schedule you for another ultrasound?

This is actually very common. Often you cannot hear the heartbeat on the monitor until the 10th week or so. As long as everything else seems normal and your doctor is not alarmed you should not worry.

I was told that they can't usually hear the heartbeat until the 10th or 11th week with the heartbeat monitor. However, I'd def. be asking for another u/s especially if you are concerned.

Thanks Stefani, Jenn and stacey for your advise. I'm not too concerned at this point and I will just wait and get re-checked next monday. Hopefully we will here something by then. But, maybe not cause I will only be 9 weeks a little over.

They could not find my baby's heartbeat at almost 15 weeks. So I rented a doppler and now can hear it everyday.
