Oh, don't worry at all! My doctor couldn't even find my LO's heartbeat with their $500 doppler at 10 weeks! This is totally normal, and she even told me that they don't usually start looking for the HB in the office until about 11-12 weeks.

I have my home doppler, and have been using it since about week 16 or so with no problems finding the HB right away. You're just a little early for the doppler to be reliable. Isn't it funny how something that we buy to give us peace of mind actually ends up causing us more anxiety!?

No, I do not think you should worry.

Dont freak out quite yet :) It is hard to find the heartbeat via doppler before 10-12 weeks. The fact that you heard it the other day is very reassuring, of course, but if it takes you a long time to find it again, dont worry. It doesnt mean there's anything wrong, it just means the baby is moving around a lot, that s/he is nice and active and healthy.
I do hope you can hear it again soon though. I know those heartbeat monitors can be a lifesaver for stressed-out, worried PAL moms like us!
