I have one from when I was pregnant with my son. I'm 14w and can't hear anything. Long as there's nothing that proves there's a problem, I wouldn't be too worried. Findimg baby's heartbeat depends on the baby's position.

What brand is it?
If it isn't one like the doppler they use at the OB's office and L&D, then it isn't going to work until MUCH later in your pregnancy, if at all.

No, you shouldn't be worried. The HB can be hard for even a trained nurse to find sometimes. Why do you think you would get nasty comments from this??

I had a sonoline b and was able to hear the hb from 10 weeks on. Sonetimes it was tricky to find it, though. I wouldnt worry though.

This one?
If so, it's a glorified microphone and not going to pick up baby's heartbeat any time soon, so I wouldn't worry about it. I had one like it woth my second and heard her heartbeat with a stethoscope long before I could on the monitor.

I heard mine about that time, but I couldn't find it every time. It will prob be very low on your belly. I found mine right above my pubic bone before (Don't remember what week I was in at that time though). Put a pillow under your bum when you lay down to find it, and it moves your uterus forward a little bit. Don't worry if you can't find it! I just now got to where I can find it every time and I am 19wks!

Probably because she goes around leaving nasty comments on other people's topics all of the time.
