Re: When did you hear the heartbeat?

Eh, lots of padding here, but my midwife got one (after working pretty hard with a doppler ) at 9 wks 4 days. I'm almost 11 weeks now and feeling a few flutters here and there so I suppose the baby is toward the front and easy to catch.

Re: When did you hear the heartbeat?

I heard it with ds at 11 wks, but my OB had to manually tip my uterus to hear it. When she tried with the doppler on my belly, she couldn't pick it up because my uterus was still very far back. She inserted her fingers and tipped it forward (not nearly as uncomfortable as it sounds!) and we could hear it plain as day. I'm 11 wks and 3 days today and am hoping to hear it as today's appt. The placement of your uterus and placenta really do make a difference!

I heard my baby's heartbeat at my first ultrasound, and I was about 8 weeks.

Re: When did you hear the heartbeat?

I heard the heartbeat at w/ doppler at 8 weeks ( and via ultrasound i got to hear it at 7 weeks) with my youngest DD ( in which i had the least amount of padding at barely 100 lbs at the 8 wk point- friggen "morning sickness"...) with my other 3 babies i heard it via doppler between 10-11 week and via ultrasound at 5 weeks with my son ( my first pregnancy and earliest ultrasound ).. he was just this almost shapeless bean with a lil heart a tickin away...

I rememebr we heard Max on DH's birthday...so he was about 13w. Jackson we heard earlier and I remember the nurse having a VERY difficult time finding it. It must have been about 11 weeks. I was a size 2 with Max and a 0 with Jackson.
