Lurking from Oct DDC.... with this one, I could find it on my own at 9 weeks. With my last one, we found it at 10 weeks, but that was with the OB doing an internal exam and internally pushing my uterus up towards my abdomen while using the doppler. It depends on where baby is and where the placenta is, I think.

If you listen, a couple tips: (1) be patient and move the wand slowly and with very small movements... just re-angling the want a few degrees can totally make a difference, (2) listen low... like, right above your pubic bone--at this point, baby is much lower than you might expect.
