    Skylady, ur baby is safe and fine inside u... :) Do not worry about that... Even I had all that but only later I realized that it was not baby's HB and that u can ever feel the baby's HB even when ur 30 weeks...

    Yes you cannot feel your baby's heartbeat yourself. Only the dr can check with a Doppler or ultrasound. So don't worry, your baby is safe and healthy.

    You CAN feel your baby's heartbeat (atleast your DH can, if he puts his ear to the right place in your stomach), but that is only after 32 weeks.

    At 8 weeks, its just not possible. Even a Doppler doesnt pick it up for some women!
    So relax, everything is fine. Just keep going for your regular checkups.

    THe HB that you feel is your own blood flow .During pregnancy the blood flow inside the uterus increases .YOUr Baby's heart beat can be heard from doppler starting from the 10 the week
