Most of the dopplers you can purchase  pick up the babys heartbeat until around 12 weeks i wouldn't try any sooner than that bcuz it might stress you out if you can't heart it i know i would be freaking out if it didn't pick it up! If you do try it don't worry if you can't hear it yet babys heart is just too small this early in your pregnancy

I started trying to hear it at about 8 weeks didnt hear anything till about 10 weeks. Good luck and dont stress if you dont find it early, it did say on yhe box that I would not hear anything till about 16, so guess I was lucky xx

no most of the home ones you have to be at the end of your second trimester or beginning of your third. 8 weeks is too early unless its the ones the doctors have which are very expensive

I got a hibabe Doppler and heard mine around 11 weeks. When you start checking make sure your checking about your pubic line is where u will normally find it. Don't freak out when you don't always find it either
