my mw got hb at 12wks for me but thats becuase i have had 3mcs and hospital wouldnt book another scan as i had one at 8wks...she found it easily but did say it went against recommendation so she had to justify it in my notes
My doppler did not work until 12 weeks +. Most state on them they can't work until babies heart is loud enough to detect.So don't worry just expect to hear a cute if weak little heart beat from around 12 weeks!
I picked up heartbeat at just before 11wks- but really didnt expect too. try not to stres this early on, its very early to find it. leave it a week, try again, if no luck leave it a week try again etc.
and dont forget how very low they are at that stage. plus moving the doppler too fast will definately miss it.
