    check really low like on your hair line! But don't worry!! Your baby has loads of room to move around! I have the same doppler and sometimes still can't find it:)

    Use plenty of moisturiser too. Finding the heartbeat can take a good while. Some days you just end up having to have a walk about and try again.

    Sometimes MW can't even find it that early. Don't stress about it, at home dopplers aren't supposed to be used medically, they are just for the fun of hearing your baby's heartbeat. They are toys, so don't get worried about it!

    PLENTY of gel :rofl: that helps and also if you tilt the transducer you get sounds from different angles. Like Kermie says it will be mega mega low, mine always was right up until 20 weeks. :hugs: Maybe give it a rest and try later when baby has moved?

    I found the hb really easy from week 10 until about 2 weeks ago and now it takes me ages to find. I started panicing so I have limited myself to checking once a week now as it just stresses me out.

    I also find if I do it in the morning after first wee before I eat or drink anything I find it easier!

    your baby has so much room to move around and they do tend to move away and hide from them as well. Aim lower than you think as well. Im 27 weeks and my midwife still takes a whie to find her sometimes and as soon as she does she moves.
