    Don't let it scare you if you can't find the heartbeat! My doctors and I couldn't find a heartbeat via doppler until 14 1/2 weeks just because the placenta is against the back wall of my uterus, so all my organs and everything were laying between the baby and my skin in the front. Hopefully you do find it sooner, though!!!

    You'll LOVE having one at home :thumbup: I bought a professional grade one for this pregnancy and couldn't hear the heartbeat until almost 12 weeks, which was surprising because I'm really thin and heard it with DS @ 11 weeks, but I guess this little baby was in hiding lol.

    GL!!

    We definitely have a way of driving ourselves a bit mad lol, but once you find the HB, we know it's worth it all :D

    Like they said don't let it scare you if you don't hear a heartbeat.. I got mine when I was 12 weeks and couldn't hear the heart! I went crazy... but I waited til I was 13 and I found it! Good luck!! It's so fun hearing it for the first time. Oh and a tip, you will be able to pick yours up like crazy... your babys heart will be a lot faster than yours, you'll know when you hear it..
