Re: Heartbeat?

last pg, MW couldn't find the HB with doppler until 14 wks! :O She did the same thing your doc did, and said "oh I hear it..." and listened hard for a while, I heard NOTHING but static. I kept saying, "I don't hear anything. Are you sure?" She said "yup, it's hard for you to hear, but I can hear it."

I was kind of upset, but I was at peace b/c I knew there was nothing she nor I could do either way. If I was going to suffer a loss, it was going to happen and there would be a reason my body was miscarrying. So I just let it be and hoped for the best.

Everything was fine and I had a healthy, happy baby with no complications.

Babies are so small still at that gestational age, and they could be way at the back of your uterus, or behind your pelvic bone, etc. so that it makes the sound waves really faint to untrained ears. Also where the placenta is matters as well.

try not to worry mama.
