I had my first u/s today also.  I got a chance to see the heartbeat but my doctor didn't tell me the heartrate.  He just showed us the heart beating on the ultrasound and said that it was strong.  I am also 7w 3d and I am also due on May 7.  He also did a lot of bloodwork and tested for a lot of things.

Does anyone know when they can HEAR a hb with just the office Doppler?  My obgyn tried it at 9 weeks (an outside chance she said, no go) but claims to sometimes get it at 10. I am worried to go back at 10 wks and again not hear it.  Anyone remember when they could hear it that way?  2 m./cs make me very paranoid.  Congrats on ultrasound--I almost fell off the table when they got a hb at 7wks5days--braced as I was for the worst.

My sister-in-law went in at 9 1/2 weeks just last week and they couldn't find a heartbeat. They took her in for an internal u/s and everything is perfect! :) Don't worry, with every baby its different. I heard my son's at 8 weeks, my friend heard her daughter's at 7 1/2. It all varies. Best of luck to you! :)

My doctor wouldn't even listen for a heartbeat until I was 12 weeks...that's about when you should be able to hear the heartbeat.  Some women hear it earlier and others won't hear it until 15+ weeks.  Don't worry...everything is probably fine.

my doctor couldn't hear my baby's heartbeat at nine weeks either, it's just a lot harder that early on.  At eleven weeks she found it after looking five minutes.  Don't worry!

Congratulations on your May 7th due date-my ds's b-day is may 6th and it's a wonderful time of the year for a birthday
