Re: why cant the doctor cant find my babys heartbeat im 14 weeks pregnant

I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I can't imagine how upset you must be AND to have to WAIT until the end of the week!? I would be finding a new OB/GYN, but that's just me. I have very little patience, especially when it concerns the well-being of my unborn baby. If a H/B was not detected, surely the dr. would want to run more tests to see what's going on instead of telling you to go home.

I will say a prayer for you and your baby and please keep us updated.

At 14 weeks, the hb should at least be seen on u/s. Maybe your Dr just wants to see if there is any changes in the u/s. But you would think he would at least do some hcg tests. I would even ask for one if he/she doesnt offer. Did he/she even say the size/age of baby? Does it match up with your 14 weeks?

I'm 15 weeks along, and we could barely find the heartbeat today. But we did, and it was very muffled so you couldn't hear it well, but it was a strong 160! Not to be rude but are you overweight? Sometimes if you're a little bigger it can be harder to find the baby. Good Luck to you and try not to panic yet. Everything may be just fine.
