no heart beat

I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my first child and I had my first ob app wed and the Dr said she couldn't get a heart beat that I needed to be 10 weeks! I don't believe this is true I thought u could hear a heart beat as early as 6 weeks! I just started spotting today with cramps I think she pressed on my tummy to hard should I go to the emergency????? Please help

I would go if u want to know what's going on. They would do an ultrasound where they could c the fluttering heart.

my midwife said she wouldnt even try til 16 weeks because baby is so small before hand!how far off is ur ultrasound..if its soon that will help as you will be able to see the babies heart beating away..if not ur just going to worry :(

They did an ultrasound on ur belly? I thought they would do a vaginal ultrasound with you being just 9 weeks. If any doubts, go get checked out. And as far as the baby, the baby could be too small to see a heartbeat with doing a regular ultrasound. I was 3 weeks when I found out I was preggo and when they did the ultrasound, there was no heartbeat bc the baby was so tiny and everything was just beginning to form. Good luck, keep us posted

The Dr's lil thing they use is not advance to hear heart beat so early. If u get a ultrasound they'll hear it. My dr. tired @ 11wks n couldn't hear mines. But I got a ultrasound @ 9 wks n they heard just fine! But ur spotting n cramps should be checked I believe. Hope u feel better.

I heard my first babys heartbeat at 7 weeks jist doing an ultrasound (not vaginally) but everyoneis different. They should have done one vaginally. However, I would go to the er just to be on the same side. Good luck!

I seen my babies heartbeat on an abdominal ultrasound right before I was 7 weeks I heard the heartbeat the day before I was 11 weeks are you sure you are that far along? Maybe you are not that far along yet and that's why but go get checked out I hope everything is ok

My doctors office normally only does vaginal ultrasounds at the 7-8 week appointment ...with my first child I was super skinny so they did it from the belly (but they said if this doesn't work we will have to do an internal) Good luck
