My GP tried finding mine at 11 weeks also, she said in some cases it is too early to hear. I had an ultrasound at 12 weeks 3 days and my babies heartbeat was strong and around 170. Then at 16 weeks we managed to hear it with the doppler, I am now 19 weeks 3 days and everything is going fine. I am sure eveything will be fine. All the best x
I had a doc. appt yesterday at 11 weeks and he couldnt find it at all on the doppler at first so he got an ultrasound in the room and searched forever then we saw the baby doing flips and moving all over the place and i saw the heart beat. They didnt tell me how fast it was going. But then once he knew where the baby was he used the doppler again at that spot and found the heartbeat and it was fast and strong....again i dont know how fast though! Im sure your fine, but i was freaking out too!
Well, I'm back from the OB. I've decided to stick with the OB rather than go with a midwife, just based on all the reproductive issues I've had in the last year. The doctor says that because of the endo, the fibroids and two consecutive miscarriage, I'm being placed in the high risk category, which doesn't really ease my mind. He didn't check for a heartbeat because I said the midwife didn't find one yesterday, but also explained that as much as I'd like to go with one, an OB is probably best for me. I'm disappointed, but I have to do what's best for the baby.
I have my FTS Screening booked. Surprisingly, it's tomorrow at 3:45pm. I'm surprised because they're getting me in pretty quickly. This was the latest time they had in the next two weeks, and I needed something after 2:30pm because of mine and DH's jobs.
So, hopefully I'll get to see the heartbeat tomorrow and see the baby doing flips and acrobatics. That'll set my mind at ease.
