  • your baby might have just been in a bad spot. I was 16 weeks and that happened and they did an ultrasound and they found the heartbeat plus i found out i was having a girl. not this time but my last one. good luck and i hope everything goes ok.

  • Don't be too stressed. With my last pregnancy they had problems finding the little guy to listen to the heart. I carry my babies kinda in a lot so I don't start showing until like the last couple months. So everytime they went to look for the heart beat it took them a while. Hang in there and I'll say a prayer for you tonight.

  • I really don't know. I was 10 weeks along. They seen no fetal movement or heartbeat. Rushed me to have a DNC for miscarriage. I'm not trying to scare you but that's what they did with me. In your case they are checking again so I don't know.

  • with my last two pregnancies, they couldn't hear the heartbeat until closer to 15-16 weeks with the doppler... i'm a plus-sized mom and my babies like to hide... good luck with your ultrasound...

  • Good luck! I hope things turn out well and it was just the baby's position.
