YES, Im only 7w0d! I got it with the last baby at 7w6d, but decided, "What the heck". Took me a few minutes to find it, but it was steady at 125 to 135bpm. I'm an expert at this point, I have been using them with my last 4 babys and this one now, over 10yrs! I could not believe it, but I know that sound like the back of my hand at this point! I have an u/s tomorrow at 9am and would bet money that Im spot on! Its the SonoB doppler which I only used for a little bit last pregnancy due to an anterior placenta, I switched to my expensive rental one. Must be a good sign that the placenta is in back this time and my uterus is tipped way forward!

How exciting!! I used one with my DS, but it was a cheap unreliable one and I thought I caught his HB a few times, but I don't really know. LOL

How exciting! I've never used one before. I always have an anterior placenta and resulting posterior babies.

Are you sure you weren't hearing you? When I use my Doppler, I'm still getting 125-135 too but it's not the baby. The baby's heart beat has a very distinct sound and is usually higher.

The heartbeat at 7wk0d would not be higher than 135. My heartbeat is in the 99"s. I know the distinct sound of the baby's hb, Ive heard it now with 5 pregnancy's. With my last baby, it was at the end of 7wks and it was 140's to 149. I know it sounds almost impossible, and I may not find him/her for another week, but I did get it!

I've been trying everyday since a little after 6 weeks knowing I likely wouldn't hear anything. I'm hoping to finally hear something in the next week or so.

I found my now 21 month old on the doppler at 7 weeks 1 day and panicked because I thought I was further along.
