I had hit and misses all the way to 12wks. I found the h/b this time at 7wks. But I was a nut job and would try MULTIPLE times a day until I did FIND it, lol. I can tell you that a full bladder v's a empty or semi full makes a huge difference right now. When my bladder was full, I'd find baby about 2 inches off my pelvic bone all the way to the left. When my bladder was empty, it was almost under the pubic bone. If I ate recently, it was very difficult to find the baby over all the intenstine sounds. It does become much easier after 12wks, but then they move so much that it's never in the same spot.

Try not to freak, give it a few hours in between checking, and I'm sure you will find that little one!
