Happy New year!

:hugs: Levi... I totally know what you're going through. The dopplers are great when they work, but it can be so, so hard to get that heartbeat. How far along are you again? Having heard the hb before, you are really in a good place and its very, very likely that everything is just fine and baby is just hidden. Of course, statistics don't matter much when you just want to know for sure that baby is fine. I know it's hard.

When these quiet spells happened for me, I would try to just put the doppler away for a few days. Obsessing and checking too much made my anxiety worse. If I just put the doppler away, then I could more "easily" convince myself that it was just too early to hear the heartbeat regularly.

Happy New Year! I'm 30 weeks today. Really. How on Earth did that happen? Like, in a month I'll be on official baby watch (both of my kids were basically 40 weekers, but I was born at 35, so I always get prepared then just in case). I'm more or less ready...no big items to buy, diapers are prepped, clothes are washed. Holy cow, it's almost real now. Pleasepleasepleaseplease....

Awwww!!! Yay! 30 weeks!! I'm jealous lol... I'm only 12 weeks and already cannot wait to wash clothes and diapers just to have them waiting for baby :) :) Soooo excited for you!!!!!! Do you know what you're having?! We aren't finding out this time so that makes the next 28 weeks really seem like an eternity :)

Deanna- Ugh I know how you feel. I felt better yesterday when I saw baby on ultrasound but literally woke up this morning with doubt and more worry. Just terrified that I am going to lose baby after seeing him/her making it that much harder :'( I keep telling myself not to borrow trouble but I've swore today that I felt cramping etc. Such a roller coaster :( I will pray for you. I know how hard getting through each day with peace of mind is right now. :hugs:

Just such a miracle and blessing!! :) HR was 157 and baby was measuring 4 days ahead.

Congrats! Glad you had good results and can relax a tiny bit :)

I am borderline regretting the doppler I got as it is the reason the past few days have been so bad. Christmas Eve & the day after Christmas I found baby's hb pretty easily. Actually, Christmas Eve I found it as soon as I stuck the probe to my skin, but since then I only heard it once (a couple days ago) for barely 3 secs. Yesterday & today...nothing! I even drank some coke & ate a donut to hopefully get baby moving around to catch a just a few seconds of that sweet sound. And I just can't shake the horrible feeling that something has gone wrong. :'( This just sucks! :(

That is hard. What worked best for me was to stay very low and find my HB on the right artery, then move slightly away from that. It was very difficult to catch at under 14 weeks for me. Try again, take as much time as you need. If you still can't find it, call your OB or MW and express your concerns.

I'm 11w2d & I have a whole week & a half before I go to the doctor again. I haven't had any cramping, but can't seem to shake the feeling that something isn't right. With my m/c in March I went to the doctor @ 8w3d only to find out the baby had stopped growing @ 6w2d & my body gave me no indication that something was wrong, so the symptoms I have now (breast tenderness, etc.) aren't reassuring. I know absolutely nothing could change anything if something bad were to happen, but if it has I want to know now, not 2 wks from now. I've felt like I've done so good until now. I hate this...it ruins everything. :crying:

Yeah, that. I have found it easier to find the HB at 8/9 weeks than at 10/11/12 weeks, since even though the baby is bigger at that later gestation, so is the space where it could be, so you could be "following" it all around your uterus and just missing it as it stays just ahead (or behind) of the sound waves. :hugs:
