Heartbeat On Fetal Doppler

... - November 1

Laura--I've never heard of a dr. say they can hear it moving around...if she can hear that she should be able to hear the heart beat you would think. How far along are you? At 12 wks 6 days my dr. told me the heartbeat can still be really hard to find, and that sometimes she can't find it so she will do an u/s. She finally found it after a minute or two, it was a lot quieter than I expected. If you're still pretty early the baby is still pretty far down in your pelvis so they might not be able to hear it yet. Did she offer you an u/s?

14 weeks on the doppler at the office, and 10 weeks on the u/s.

Yes but only because I was worried about some xrays I had when I didnt know I was pregnant. She seemed very certain that we probly wouldnt be able to find the heartbeat but we will try anyway. In NZ we dont really use doctors during pregnancy unless its high risk, we have midwives. When she tried to use the doppler I was 13 weeks and a bit.
