Just remember to look LOW for it. It will be (usually is) near your pelvic bone still.... Very low. And use a fair amount of gel! I can't wait to hear your update

Yay! How exciting I agree, the brief second we found mine, it was REALLY low. dont be afraid to push down a little.... also they say a full bladder helps with the conduction of the sound.

Just a thought if you dont find it low, mine at 8 weeks 4 days was not low, it was up higher and if I have a full bladder its harder to find the hb...even now at 16 weeks I pee before I try to listen. Remember to angle the probe and go very slow. Good luck, cant wait to see the video.

I was always told that full bladder would help u finding the hb with hand doppler when ur at this stage of the pregnancy..Idk.It worked for me..

Anyhow,yay for the doppler Take it easy now and don't freak out if for some rreason u can't find the hb right away.
It's true the doppler can ease ur mind but it could worse the anxiety too.

Try going as low as you can without being on the pubic bone, then point down as if going under your pubic bone. It takes a while to find it the first time, but after that it is easy! Your ab muscles are probably much stronger than mommies with more kids. Sometimes its harder to find with your first. Also move it really slowly as the baby is still small and easy to miss! Hope this helps!!
