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.
