Fetal doppler sounds (wind)??

From what I've read about dopplers, they don't recommend use before 12 weeks. Even though some women can pick up on it earlier. They also pick up sounds of your insides, that can be described as 'wind' or 'water' sounds. I can't imagine the anxiety your friend is feeling. I hope she hears a heartbeat soon or even better sees one at her first ultrasound. I saw the heartbeat before I heard it at the doctors. I didnt hear it till 11 weeks. They should see her soon with her history.

Hi, when I was 10 weeks we could not hear the heartbeat with the doppler in the doctor's office (I heard the wind sounds also, she said that sound was normal). since I had a sonogram & could see the heartbeat, my doctor wasn't concerned. She also told us that one of her nurse could hear it as early as 8 weeks with one of her kids & couldn't until 14 weeks with another one. I am sure her baby will be fine this time.

Any movement the ultrasound picks up (Dopplers are a type of ultrasound) is translated into sound, so she could be hearing anything from her own blood moving through the placenta to her bowels contracting.

At this stage the heart is very very tiny (like less than 1/4 inch), so managing to hit that particular itty bitty movement out of all the things it could be is really hard. That's why they don't recommend using them until later--it's too stressful to hunt and hunt and hunt for it when there is little chance of hitting the magic spot. Even when the doc has a visual ultrasound to guide them, it can be difficult to get the heart beat at that early stage.

I hope she has great news, and if they found a heartbeat already, then her odds are good that it's going to be ok. She definitely deserves a good healthy pregnancy with all her losses! It may help her to visualize the little babe and picture how small it is to help reassure herself that it's just that the heart & baby are so small right now that it's just not easy to find the heartbeat. Plus, if she happens to have an anterior placenta developing, then it will be even harder to find at this stage because the placenta would be in front of where the baby is.
