c-section scar tissue vs. doppler

Postby MK13 » Tue May 29, 2012 4:10 pm

Just wondering ... those of you with one or two c-sections and subsequent pregnancy, did you find it harder to find the baby's heart beat on the doppler early on? I've had two c-sections so far and was hoping to find the hb by now (close to 11 weeks) but still can't find it. And I'm only 109lbs, so fat is not an issue so that's why I wonder if the scarring inside could make it more difficult?

Did you have any issues after the first one to find the HB?

I never tried till after 11 weeks with the first two pregnancies so don't have anything to compare it to :(
