Cant hear the baby heart beat on 9wks in doppler :(

sept 25,2012 my second check up and my OB calculated my baby age is 9weeks we  use doppler to hear the baby heat beat but unfortunatly we cant hear it im sched for my transvi on friday im so nervous hope everything will be fine . By the way i had my misscarriage last feb. and on july my ob recommended me to use a contraceptive pills so that my mens will be normal but suddenly  when we go out of town for our vacation i forgot to bring my pills and then this is the reason why I got pregnant. But im so nervous because I dont feel prego signs but I have sore breast. hope everything will be ok .

I didn't hear mine on a Doppler till 16 weeks. I think 9 is too early to hear anything. My dr tried to hear it at 11 and we didn't hear anything. It's all about where the baby is positioned. I wouldn't worry :)

I got to hear my babys heartbeat a 9 weeks 6 days through a sonogram and then went to the doc at 14 weeks and they couldn't find the heartbeat. Talk about a scared momma! But I was tokd the dopplet they use in docs office isny as sensitive as the one on a sonogram so its normal not to hear it until later.

Oh, and im now 32 weeks with a healthy baby boy so, if I was you I wouldnt worry to much. Baby is still tiny, maybe a inch long so of course it will be super hard to find. Good luck(:

Thru all my pregnancy dr never tried before 12 weeks to get the hb with the doppler

You cant doppler heart tones at 9 weeks. Usually you need to be at least 12....and sometimes further along depending on your weight. I wouldn't even worry about that if i were you...im sure its fine.

I had a bleed at 12 weeks so they used a Doppler and it would only just pick it up then it would fade out. I'd say your are probably just a little hit too early for it to be able to pick up the heart beat yet. Try not to worry :))

You uterus is still below your pelvic bone so chances of hearing anything until 12 weeks + (when it rises above your pelvic bone) are low.
Don't stress too much, even at 12 weeks they still have a tough time finding it!
