triciafarris - January 29

Hi, I am currently around 11 weeks pregnant and have been to see my midwife (living in spain so not the same as first pregnancy in uk) ive had tests etc and had my first doppler scan, she couldnt find a heartbeat, she says the baby may be small and im still waiting for an appointment at the hospital, has anybody else had this before? Im getting very worried now!xx

I wouldnt be too worried just because she didnt pick up the heartbeat on a doppler it is very very common not too. some women dont get a HB on a doppler until 14 or 15 weeks, i was 14 weeks when we heard mine. have you had your first ultrasound yet? Im sure you will see a nice HB on u/s if you get one/another done as I said it is so COMMON not to get the HB so early on doppler, take care :)

Triciafarris; I agree with DouwnbutnotOut; 11 weeks is very oftern too early to hear the baby's HB on the doppler, so don't worry. With my current pregnancy, my OB didn't even try with the doppler until I was 14 weeks, because he said u/s was much more effective to measure the baby's HB before then. I had a little scare at about 18 weeks - my OB couldn't find the baby's HB easily because he said the baby was moving around too much (!!), so we swapped to u/s and there it was, nice and strong. So don't worry; in another couple of weeks it should be more easily detected :)
