Well, at 13 weeks for me, they couldn't find the heartbeat. It was very scary. My DH and I were just kind of looking at each other while our nurse was trying to find it. But she could hear the placenta or something like that, and she said since they are still so tiny that sometimes it's hard to hear them so early. Anyways, she just put me on the ultrasound and there we saw our baby squirming around with their heart beating nice and strong.
Although I do have to admit, that I'm afraid we won't hear his/her heartbeat again when we got Tuesday. And if we don't, I'm going to ask her if everything's okay developmentally and such. And if she says, yes, then I'll just consider it a blessing that I can actually look at my baby every appointment I have. :D
