I think that is still pretty early. I didnt hear mine until 13 wks. Everyone is different though. I have heard some as early as 9wks but for the majority it is 11 wks and on. If you bought one right now you may detect only your hb and worry yourself. Have you had an us yet with your dr?
I bought one and was so glad that I did. I don't think we heard the hb from home until after 12 weeks. Sorry, my ds is 9mths now and I have trouble remembering back that far!!! Haha, they do work and I was a worrier due to previous m/c so it was awesome for me. I used it whenever I thought movement was low. My dr did say they don't encourage it because they are unsure of the effects it has on the baby. It is sound waves and they don't know what the baby can and cannot hear while in the belly. They suggested I come in whenever worried. Well, if that was the case I would have been in there sometimes 5x a day!!! My son was born healthy!!! Best wishes.
The earliest that i have heard of anyone picking up a hb on a home doppler was 8w4d. But this lady had one of those real expenxive high tech dopplers. But i think the average is probably around 11 weeks or so or even later.
I rented mine from babybeat.com when I was about 9 weeks. When I first got it I couldnt hear my lil boy's heartbeat, I thought it was too early but I just had to try when I got it in the mail =) I heard it 5 days later though. It was so amazing! I recommend babybeat.com they have awesome home dopplers
I got mine from babybeats too, and heard it at 10 weeks. It depends on a lot of different things though, like how good the doppler is, the position of the baby, the position of the placenta, the position of your uterus, whether or not you are overweight...I don't think they worry about it unless the dr is unable to find it after 14 weeks.
