I feel so anxious. We lost our angel baby at 9 weeks after a good ultrasound. This time I had a good ultrasound at 7 1/2 weeks and have just been trying to get by ever since.

The midwife agreed to try to listen for the heartbeat with a doppler. I know it's early days, but I just want to try. Will it help my anxiety if we don't find it? No, but atleast we tried.

Please send good vibes.

Sending hb vibes your way...hopefully she can get it on the doppler! Do you think she might send you for an u/s if she can't, to ease your mind!?

When I went in for the first doppler check of heart beat it took the doctor a while to find it. Not so much because baby was hiding but more because she was doing a methodological sweep of the area so as not to miss it. It was really nerve wracking to wait for it!

So strong heart beat vibes and hope the midwife finds it quickly and easily!

The midwife couldn't find a heartbeat and I tried again later but I couldn't either. I know you ladies are going to want to reassure me, and I love you for it. But I need to back off from pregnancy and baby related stuff for a week or two. This is too stressful and I need to focus on L.

I'm sorry they couldn't find it- I've never even had them try that early with a doppler only u/s.
Will be thinking of you though!! Understand the need to step back a little, reduce the stress.

Sorry they couldn't find it! Maybe give it a couple days and try again on your own. It's early.... It took my midwife a couple minutes to find my baby's today and I'm over 14 weeks.
