    When did you find the baby's heartbeat on a dopplar?

    today was my 2nd doctors appt. and my first one with my midwife.

    she told me thats its very early (almost 8 weeks along now) and not to worry at all if she doesn't find the heartbeat.

    well, she didn't find it, but we could hear all the fluids swishing around, and she said after the physical exam, that everything looks normal, and my uterus and everything is growing nicely.

    so i'm guessing i shouldn't be worried then. i just wish i would have heard it :/

    my next appt is january 26th...

    Lovingyou, my sis is a GP and told me she never ever can find a heartbeat even at 12 weeks. She actually doesnt like to even check for it because it just stresses the mothers out so much. She says its usually 14/15 weeks before they can find a heartbeat with any ease.

    Hope that makes you feel better..
