FETAL DOPPLER!!!!!!

I'M 11 WEEKS AND 5 DAYS PREGNANT. YESTERDAY I WENT TO MY OB APPOINTMENT AND THE DOCTOR TOLD ME THAT SHE DIDNT WANT TO DO THE FETAL DOPPLER BECAUSE IT IS TO SOON,SHE SAID AT 12 WEEKS THEY WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT. IS IT TRUE THAT YOU HAVE TO BE 12 WEEKS PREGNANT SO THEY WILL BE ABLE TO PICK UP THE BABY HEART BEAT?

  • They say you can ony hear the babies heart beat from 10-12 weeks onwards. So, there is no need to worry or anything. You'll love it when you hear it.

    Its amazing.

    I'm 18 weeks. I'm buying a home doppler so i can listen at home.

    I've been having some kidney probems and i always get worried its gonna affect the baby. So, hearing the heartbeat myself wil keep me at ease.

  • mine tried at 11 weeks because of some bleeding and got nothing he ended up doing a ultrasound to make sure baby was alive and it is but the nurse told me 11- 13 borderline to whether a doppler will pick it up...
