From what I read online HB's can't be heard until 12 weeks, but I wanted reassurance from here.

When I mentioned it to my doula (she's an apprentice midwife) she said that 55% of babies can't be found with Doppler before 12 weeks. She said that IF a mother wants it they will try with Doppler before 12 weeks, and if nothing is heard that the mother can stop by weekly to try to hear the heartbeat until the next monthly appointment.
This certainly calmed me down a lot!

Thanks for the encouraging words. My mw did say I can come back whenever I want to re-check. I've had pretty intense morning sickness frmo the beginning so that's made me feel better. Of course, today I woke up thinking, "Huh. How do I feel? Am I not nauseaus? Did the sandwich I ate before bed and the orange I ate before I got out of bed this morning help that much? Did the ms suddenly disappear?" My mw knew I would gauge the level of my symptoms everyday until I hear the hb. lol.
