Jonesie/jjh - Doppler can usually pick baby's heart beat around 12wks. Sometimes earlier. The heartbeat is usually too faint to be heard with a fetascope until 18-20wks. Sometimes it can be heard as early as 16 :)
We're going to try with the doppler at 12+3. My next appt. after that will be 16wks so I'll have try the fetascope. I might purchase one myself as well. It might be fun and something my clients would get a kick out of trying themselves also :)
No u/s here until 18-20wks!
I have one to contribute!! By my LMP, I'm 17w4d, but by the u/s I'm 18w6d. If the baby is "late", we'll go by my LMP. If baby tries to come early, we'll use the sono date to keep me from having to birth in a hospital. hehe Feels kinda naughty jimmying with the system. We had good frontal views of the baby until the very end when this was captured. Silly bieb.
