Well, it arrived. My Hi Bebe LCD Fetal Doppler.

I still can't find the heartbeat. I thought I had it a couple of times, but the reader would not hold a HB count that was in the right zone (as distinguished from mine) so I count that as not finding it at all. I am not freaking out. I searched the manufacturer's site and it says sensitive from 10-12 weeks. I am only 11w 1d, so I am hopeful that it is just too early.

Next week I will be posting a daily HB report!

P.S. I'm joking, but only a little!

According to the Pregnancy Tracker at Fertility Friend:

At the end of the twelfth week of pregnancy... you can hear your baby's heartbeat with a Doppler Ultrasound device!

So, I will report back on this next Wednesday, with hopefully a number and a redoubled sence of peace and confidence!!

Hey Libby, I can totally understand your need to check (check and re check).
