Good luck! Don't be upset though if you can't find it just yet. I think it took until 12 weeks before I could find anything with my first. And it was really 14+ weeks before I could find it consistently.

I was about 10 weeks when we heard the heartbeat and my doctor said that was pretty early, so if you don't get it right away don't worry!!!! It's there.

FYI, it's lower than you might think. So start just above your pelvic bone and aim downwards. Good Luck!!!

I was going to add, it will be fairly low at this point. But, I did get strange areas higher up with this pregnancy than with Bradley's. When I was earlier on I had to apply a teency wincy bit of pressure. !

Yep you will have to add some pressure to the probe, and like others have said dont freak out if you don't find it. The day I found mine i had tried twice already that day and I was so upset that I couldnt get it, so I tried one more time but I went higher the next time and there he was and I was 8 weeks 4 days. But I cant tell you how many times after that I would try and not find him and it would take a couple of tries and some tears were shead then too lol.

Also I don't really count on the doppler display for the hr, I count them myself and I get a hr around 160's and so does my ob, but the doppler likes to tell me its 140's and sometimes 130's.

What I do is count the beat to 10 seconds and then times by 6.

I heard my DD's heart bet on the doppler at my OB's office at 9weeks 2 days, so it is possible. Just be patient and move SLOWLY so you don't miss it.
