It was at my 16 week appointment that GP checked for heartbeat and found it with her doppler. Before 16 weeks I went to gyne at 8 and 12 weeks and he scanned me so there was no need to use a doppler.

Bree I just posted in June thread to say that my GP wouldn't even try to listen to it and I'm 15wks. He said he wouldn't pick it up. I was sure he could at this stage but I suppose it would have freaked me out if he couldn't find it.

i was 14 weeks (and 1 day) when the consultant picked mine up, but he did warn me that it may be too early and not to freak out if he couldnt.
