I don't have a doppler, but my doctor tries it every time she sees me. We didn't hear it on 9+6 (first try), but we did hear it this week at 13+5. This is my first pregnancy, and I'm not even close to showing yet, so the uterus was probably still quite low and protected back at 9+6.

I saw the heartbeat at 8w3d, at my dating ultrasound, but didn't actually hear it until 11w4d, when my doppler was delivered.

Thanks for the you tube vids it gives me a good idea what to hear for. I've not found it yet but will try again, I would really love to find it as I've had bleeding and would really ease my mind!!

It is very likely that what they actually heard, was the whooshing from the placenta, their own heartbeat, etc. It's just really, really hard to find the hb on something so small...and baby is moving all over at this gestation too. Good luck! I'm sure there ARE people who have heard it this early on with their dopplers...but I don't think it's as common as the web will have you believe.
I always find baby around 8 weeks and I can assure you I know the difference. If you know what you are looking for and are very patient it's quite common to find it.

I've the same Doppler. I found mines at exactly 9 weeks. Extremely low down and a bit to the left

Am I looking in the right place sort of along my pelvic bone or do I need to go lower?

Along the top of your pubic bone then angle it around and down very slow rotating movements, might be easiest to start at your artery on the far left or right so you get to know the sounds x

I find that they tend to be hugging behind that so if you tilt Doppler one way you can hear your own hb and tilt it another and you hear baby. Patience is the key early on you have to move so slowly and you can literally go over the same place forever before you find it. It's only in the last 3 days that I've found it instantly.
