I don't know what to do...only at the doctors after a while he mange to find the hearbeat..a simple doppler is not working 4 me....
i'm so ahamed...any suggetions?
How far along are you?
Because it's not uncommon to not be able to hear it until 14+ weeks.
I mean if they can't find it because you are overweight, maybe lose a little? I don't know what other suggestion to give. I'm sorry if that seemed rude, that was not my intentions.
if the doctor found the heartbeat then i'm sure bubs fine, even if it took a while to get it is probably just the way bub is positioned at the moment
It could be you are too early
and baby is so small
dont be hard on yourself
I always had a little trouble finding my son's heart beat, and I was pretty small when I was pregnant. The doctor always had to look for it, as well.
A lot of it has to do with baby's position. Don't beat yourself up!
I'm 13 weeks & we just BARELY heard it.. not even enough to just sit there.
I'm overweight too... I find it hard to believe your "too fat" to hear it.
I think baby is just too early to hear it.
I was around 180 when I got preg, and at 12 wks they couldnt hear it with a doppler, but at my u/s they could. Just wait a bit? If it's in there you will hear it eventually.
I wouldn't worry.. i actually just got a home doppler, ha, and used it for the first time 15 min.s ago. It's not that easy to find it, it took me a little bit. But I wouldn't worry :)
I couldn't find my LO's heartbeat at home with a doppler, even going into my 7th month. Don't stress yourself about it!
Quoting Ravey Candyass:" Yes. let's tell the girl who is already upset to loser weight while she's pregnant."
Dont be stupid and try to loose weight while your pregnant! There are loads of reasons why they wouldnt be able to hear it... maybe your baby's just been a little tinker and turned in a funny position... im a big lass and im not going to be going on any sort of diet while im pregnant... Monster Max's mamma... it must be loverly to be perfect while pregnant :)
thank u for your comments they mean a lot..i actually have anoter doctors appointment tommorow i will ask him for a healty eating doc..:-)
hope it goes well..
don't be hard on yourself. Usally you dont hear the heartbeat until 10 wks or later. it could be how he/she is position (spelling) .. im sure your baby just fine :)
congrats on being preggos :)

I said I wasn't being rude. It was an honest suggestion. And it isn't unhealthy to lose weight while pregnant if you do it right by eating healthy and doing light work outs. My aunt was told to lose weight during her pregnancy by her OBGYN, she lost about 20 lbs and her baby came out perfect.
