Well...I went to see the midwife today. She tried for a good 15 minutes to get a heartbeat and got nothing, so I'm getting an ultrasound later today. Since I'm 13.5 weeks we really should've heard something, but at the same time its entirely possible it was just in a bad spot or something. Anyway, I need good US vibes! lol

Sending you happy baby u/s vibes! I can't remember if I was 12 or 13 weeks with my third when the same thing happened to me. But either way, he's 2 now, so clearly things were fine!

Mama - my midwife couldn't hear a heartbeat at 11 weeks because my placenta is anterior. Happy bouncy baby inside though! Sending you lots of :

Cari, did she hear any fetal movement or placental sounds? I often find that I can't pinpoint baby's HB at 13 or 14 weeks because they're just so LITTLE at that point, but I can often reassure mom anyway because we'll hear kicks and/or placental sounds and that can tide her over until her next visit.

Whatever the case, I'm sending good u/s vibes your way!

She couldn't get anything. I was listening too, I didnt hear anything at all-not even my pulse (which I know I always hear at least once each visit, )

I know its probably fine and nothing is wrong, but I'm definately glad I'm getting the US done-waiting 4 weeks would drive me nuts.

Oh also, she said I'm measuring right on for 13-14 weeks, which is reassuring.

Try not to worry, mama

The fact that you couldn't hear anything could be reassuring kwim? Maybe the doppler was broken...like you said, you always hear your own pulse, etc. so something had to be off, you know?? eta: and you are obviously alive even though you didn't hear your own sounds.

Well, she tried 2 different dopplers so I have no idea....maybe its like Carley said and I have an anterior placenta or something. I've never had one before, so it'd explain why I cant hear anything....I guess.

Here's hoping all is okay!

They tried to hear mine at 12 weeks, and it took forever, and I still never heard it. The midwife eventually said she heard it way in the back (behind the placenta), but I still didn't hear anything, and it took two of them to try. I've heard both other babies at 10 weeks, so it freaked me out to be waiting that long.

This waiting space is so tricky. I hope the ultrasound brings good things.

Busy mama to my three little lads!

Gah, I'm sorry, I'm so bad. I totally forgot to update...my appointment was really late (7 at night!) and an hour away so by the time we got home, I ate and crashed.

As soon as the US tech put the thingie on my belly, we saw the baby waving. We saw the heart a little bit later, but obviously baby was fine since she was squirming. And no, I have no idea if its a she, the tech said she wont even check at this point cause its not accurate, I just keep calling it a she, lol.

No idea why we couldnt hear anything though. My placenta isnt anterior and my uterus is well above my pelvis. I guess she's just good at hiding! Everything looked fine though and the US confirmed what I thought to begin with-that I was right and that OB was wrong, so hahahaha! neener neener! (I'm mature!) Baby measured 13 weeks and 1 day and I was 13 weeks and 3 days so pretty darned close.

They gave us lots of pics, I posted the nicer ones on my flickr, along with a small video clip. Its here if anyone wants to see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/36597415@N03/
