    I heard ours at 11 wks 6 days. I have a tilted uterus and that makes it more difficult to hear early. Now I can go to the same exact spot and hear it just perfect! (My uterus has moved now to where I am able to hear it)
    Good luck! :hugs:

    It was hard for me at first in the 9w range. At about 9w 6d I heard one heartbeat...took some patience, but I've got it almost nailed down now!

    I don't think I've read of many people who have found hb at 8 weeks with a doppler. baby is only 1.6cm at 8 weeks, so teeny tiny, and the heart is even smaller, so chaces of acutally pointing the doppler in the right direction at something so small and hidden behind the pubic bone is unlikey. If you feel crappy thats a good sign.

    9+1 for me, that was the first time we tried it and picked it up within 5 minutes just above pubic bone! Its the best feeling to hear it beating away... so I have ordered my own off ebay for $57.. should be here early next week :)

    I am at 10 weeks and only could hear it for a few seconds but not as well as I hoped. I have a tilted uterus as well so Im sure that in a few weeks it will be a lot easier to find it. I have already seen and heard baby's heartbeat 2 times so I know its in there beating away. My OB said I will be able to hear it on WED and Ill be 10 weeks 6 days so pretty much 11 weeks. We will see I know their's is a lot more high tech than mine. So I will keep trying in a few weeks and should be able to hear it a lot easier. It does take ALOT of patience.

    Will be such a nice feeling if you find it, I'm so hoping I find it quickly or I'll panic haha.
