shoot, I was hoping I'd be able to hear the heartbeat at my first appointment coming up - I'll be 10 weeks, 5 days. Sounds like it probably won't happen

Last week at my 12 week appt she couldnt get the HB. I see an OB so she had me get an u/s right away right there in the office. It was disappointing to not hear the heartbeat but I got to see the bean which was even better. The tech said the baby was too busy moving around and it would have been hard to get the heartbeat even if I didnt have the extra "fluff".

Its ok mamma, 10 w is very early to hear a hb. Most Mw's wont even bother listening b/c theres a greater chance that you wont hear one and then the woman will only worry for the next 4 weeks! You will most likely hear one next time, but stranger things have happend. I have a cousin who didnt hear it with a doppler till 16 w.
Calm relaxing stressfree vibes to you........

Oh, don't worry! This is why I don't do Doppler or other ultrasound in pregnancy. I just don't know and don't worry.
