When did u firs hear babys heartbeat?

I saw it at 6 weeks with the internal ultrasound (had spotting and was nervous) and today at my 9 week we didn't hear it. She said it was fine, but I still don't know why to think! My midwife also said my uterus feels like it is right around 9 weeks as well, and it can still be early.
I guess I'm being silly- I can't remember the first time I heard it with my boys, I thought it was earlier, like 7 & 8 weeks. We are telling our parents today and I wanted to say I heard the HB! :/ ah, we'll.

I don't think I "heard" it till I went to my OB around 14 weeks. However I saw it at 6 weeks 4 days. Sometimes ultrasound techs don't turn up the volume on the machine so you "hear" it.

I have had 10 ultrasounds to date not including doppler checks.

From past experience, I don't even try until 12 weeks anymore.

Re: When did u firs hear babys heartbeat?

with my first dd it was 8 weeks. With my second dd we couldn't find it at 11 weeks, but I had a tilted uterus and my placenta was anterior. We found it the next time at 15-16 weeks. Meanwhile we had an ultrasound (vaginal) to check on her, and she was right there moving and a great heartbeat, just couldn't hear it with the doppler. It can be nerve racking. Hoping you have a good report.

16 weeks. Had my first appointment at 12 weeks, and we couldn't find it. Didn't have a problem at all finding it at my 16 week appointment.

Re: When did u firs hear babys heartbeat?

With my first I had an appt around 11 weeks because I was so sick. Dr couldn't find a heartbeat with the doppler so they scheduled me for a u/s that day...talk about freaking out! Heard and saw it with a vaginal us...not seen with abdominal. Turns out I have a tilted uterus likw the other women in my family. With my second I told the midwife not to even check until after 12 weeks..she did though. I had an early u/s that time for date checking around 7 weeks, so I was able to see it then. And heard it at my scheduled 12 week appt.
