  • I don't think constipation can cause one not to hear the heart beat.

  • I would not think that is a reason that they could not find a heart beat. That does not mean that you have had a miscarriage. It could be the position of the baby for your uterus that is making it difficult to find the heart beat. Also our actual size can hinder the hearing of the heartbeat. It is not until about the 12th week that they can almost always find the heart beat.

  • I hope you are not having a miscarriage. I also don't think that would make you not hear the heartbeat. They should have been able to see the heartbeat even if they couldn't hear it at 9-10 weeks but you may also not be as far along as they think you are that has happened to my SIL
