Hi everyone! I'm scheduled for my first prenatal appointment next week, and estimate I'll be around 8 weeks at that point. I keep reading that dopplers, even at midwives' and doctors' offices, can't hear the baby's heartbeat until 9-10 weeks. Is this true, in your experience? I know for sure I'm not getting an ultrasound at this appointment, but I desperately want to hear that heart beat and know things are okay so far. Has anyone heard their baby's hearts via doppler this early?
