I know a couple of ladies have them and I remember one person was able to hear their baby already so if you have one have you heard baby yet and if so how far along were you.

I am 10 weeks 3 days today I tried at 10 weeks but could not find it. Now that being said I only tried for about 5 min and then went to bed. And I am also a plus size mommy so it may take me a little longer than others.

I have never had my own,but I know my midwife couldn't find it on me at 11 weeks. Bub was tucked under the pubic bone.

When I had mine before I waited until I was 11 or 12 weeks and was able to find the hb pretty quick each time. I'm also on the bigger side. I think I will (try) to wait until about 11 or 12 weeks again before getting one.

I use mine daily (I'm trying to change it to every other day, or better yet every few days) and have found the heartbeat easily starting at 9 weeks, 5 days. The first couple of days it took about 5 minutes and a lot of patience, but now that I know where to look I can usually find it in about 30 seconds. I'm on the smaller side though.

I was able to find my baby's HB Monday at 9 weeks. I was hoping I might be able to find it since that's when I found my 2nd baby's HB too and sure enough after looking for a few minutes I found it. It fluctuated from the 140's to 160's while I listened.

I wanted to go get one today, but DD hadn't had her friend over in a few weeks so we decided a play date was better and I'll just go on Tuesday when I'm over that way.

I had a midwife appt at 10w5d and the midwife didn't want to attempt it since it can be hit or miss and didn't want me panicking if she didn't pick it up. I'm average sized.

Don't stress, I'm sure you'll hear it soon!

At my first appt the dr tried to find the hb with a Doppler and obviously couldn't. I was only 7 weeks! When we said isn't it a little early she said she could usually find it?! I knew that wasn't right but we'd decided we didn't want to get a vaginal ultrasound so it freaked me out a little and was pretty frustrating to worry over nothing. Wasn't planning on staying with her because I loved my dr last time so much but definitely glad to be back with her!!

I'm in the market for one but can't seem to find the one that connects to a mobile phone so I can send the beat to my family! Will keep looking!
