My drs office doesn't try for a heartbeat till 12+ weeks too. At my 12 week apt I had a nurse practitioner and it took her a couple of mins to find it. Then I had a follow up at 14 weeks (my blood pressure was high at 12 weeks) and the dr found it right away. It will get easier to find the heart beat the further along you get.
