I have a HiBebe 2gh (or whatever it is).... anyhoo.. I can't really find the heartbeat. The directions say between 10w-12w. I don't think I used it with my DS until about 12-13w. So I am doing my best not to stress out. I could hear lots of swishing and bumps, and every once and awhile I could catch a faint heartbeat and then it would disappear. Again.. I am not going to stress because it is still very early to hear with a doppler, especially the lower gh or mz.. or whatever it is measured by. Just want to find my bean.. I know I am jumping the gun.
Funny how you just posted this.... my doppler should be in tomorrow. Same exact one you have. I am not much further along than you....but hoping to hear the hb tomorrow. Hope that you catch the peanuts hb soon.
You will be 11 weeks tomorrow.. That can make a difference, but I don't remember using it before 12 weeks with DS. And after about 12 weeks I found it within seconds. Just make sure you can convince yourself not to stress if you don't find it.
this happened with my dd around the same age. i had to methodically go across very very low in my belly and even then i just got very quick "glimpses". i finally found it loud almost under my pubic bone. they are SOOOO small and have so much room to move - it is tough this early! - plus mine was more sensitive than that one, i believe.
really try not to stess! everything is fine in there i am sure!!

Don't stress too much hun! I don't think I started using one till about 15 weeks & I still had a hard time. I also had an anterior placenta so everything was very muffled. I'm sure everything is just fine!

Sometimes they are just hiding so good, I went in for my 14 week appointment with Kaetlin and they could not find a heartbeat, They had to get me into a ultrasound and they found it right away tucked down deep, Baby was fine , But I can understand it making you nervous
