I have a question i am 7 weeks pregnant and at my doctors appt today my doctor tried to listen for a heartbeat with this black device and said she couldnt hear anything is this normal? Im scared now! They scheduled me for a u/s next Thursday but please someone calm me and tell me this is normal so I wont have to worry until next week!

That could just mean that you are not as far along as they thought you might be.

Do you mean he tried to find it with a Doppler? My doc was saying even at 11/12 weeks, sometimes they can't find the heartbeat. But u/s will show it for sure. Good luck.

They used I guess what was a doppler device said she couldnt hear a heartbeat which scared me a little : (

Don't give up hope. I went for an u/s (v____al) today thinking I was 8 w 4 d and was really only 7 weeks...must have ovulated late in my cycle?! Anyway...I did see the heartbeat. Hope for the best Janice....and say a prayer- that is all we can's out of our hands for now! Keep us posted!

Janice, 7 weeks is still super early to hear the heartbeat. If she is scheduling the US it is because you can see it at 6 weeks and she wants you to see it. But you can't usually hear it until 10 weeks or so. I heard mine at 11 weeks.

I went to have a us at 6 weeks, saw and heard the heartbeat and at my visit to my ob yesterday he stated that is a fake heartbeat, now I'm worried all the time, I go for genetics testing Monday but I can't go on like this until then, anyone else ever heard of this

Lori, I have never heard of a fake heart beat, and this is baby number 4 for me. At 6 weeks my baby's heart was pumping at 128bpm. My ob said that was a great heart beat for 6 weeks. So i would not stress over it.

I would not worry. My dr would not even try to listen until i was at least 10 weeks. She said it is very hard to pick up the heartbeat when they are less then 10wks

Do not even think about worrying, I would consider changing doctors. A heartbeat cannot be heard with a doppler until 12 wks. A hearbeat can be detected by u/s at 6 wks, but my u/s wouldn't show a hearbeat at 6 wks and I worried myself sick. I went back two weeks later, I saw and heard the hearbeat by u/s. I changed doctors because I worried myself sick and he never a__sured me at six wks that no heartbeat was common. A good doctor will always tell you the statistics or if its common or not. Good luck, I will be praying for you, leave it to God everything will be fine. Sorry to get so upset but I know what your going through and it just makes me mad for you.
