I am 11 weeks pregnant and I tried using my home fetal doppler. I tried for 30 minutes and couldn't find a heartbeat. In the last year I have suffered from 2 miscarriages and thought using the doppler would ease my worry. Now I think that I am probably going to miscarry again because there was no heartbeat. Should I be worried or is it still too soon to heart a heartbeat. Please help!
even dr's have a hard time finding it at 13 weeks sometimes. dont stress, baby could be hiding or be real low.
I don't think most at home fetal dopplers detect a heartbeat that early. I could be wrong though, but that's what I've researched.
I couldn't find the heartbeat on my Sonoline until after 13 weeks. I wouldn't worry about it. I had a miscarriage before this pregnancy so I understand the concern. Are you putting enough gel on? Looking low enough?
when i was 11 weeks with my second, i went to ER, due to a ton of braxton hick's contractions (even they couldn't understand why i was contracting so early) anyway they couldn't find the heartbeat so i was immediately sent to ultrasound, everything was fine! could just be too early! i did have ptl 3 times during the pregnancy, and incompetent cervix, now i'm wondering if it was all related hmmmmm.
Thanks ladies you have been super helpful!!
Went to the Dr and found a strong healthy heartbeat! I'm getting rid of the home Doppler it only causes more stress.
