Today was my first prenatal appt. We couldn't hear the heartbeat -- boo. I'm only 10 weeks, so I know it's still within the realm of normal to not be able to hear it. My MW said to stop back next week for 5 mn and she'll have another listen.
Couldn't hear the heartbeat today.
just wanted to offer you some hope. Same thing happened to me last week. I was actually surprised that she even tried because with each of my babies I didnt hear the heart beat this early. Nevertheless, she was determined to find it so she did a quick ultrasound and baby was good as gold. I have a tipped uterus which always makes it hard to find so early so I'm guessing this is also the case for you too. Keep us updated!!
I was exactly 10 weeks at my last appointment and the midwife and I searched for literally 5 minutes or more without finding anything. We ended up having to switch to a stronger doppler, try different body positions and look around for another few minutes before finding it and losing it rather quickly! I'm sure you'll be hearing it next week! :)
