9+1 today and can already find baby above my pubic bone, baby was behind it last week so it's moved up fairly high in a week!
Anyone else experiencing this?
also it IS baby's heartbeat before anyone says I'm hearing mine...I recorded it for midwife and she confirmed its baby
i can hear it moving on Doppler too, and swear I've felt it a few times! Starting to wonder if I'm further on...even though we were ttc and I know when I OV ect twins maybe??

That's exciting! I've heard people say that they struggle to get anything before 16 weeks. There's a big difference between babies heartbeat and your own so I'm guessing it's pretty obvious which is which. Is this your first baby? I've been umming and ahhing over getting a dipper so my boys can hear baby and feel like it's a bit more real rather than just the fact mummy's getting fat! When is your first scan to confirm how far and whether it's twins or single? Xx
That's supposed to be doppler, silly auto correct!!

I have one that I have used for all 4 of my pregnancy and have been able to find the hb from 8-9 weeks with the Doppler pointing down towards my pupic bone. To find it easily above your pupic bone at 9 weeks does seem a bit odd so I think they may be a good possibility that it could be twins x

This is a video I've uploaded to you tube if you want to see, let me know what you think
also it's second baby rach, I know the womb can move faster with subsequent pregnancys but this fast..... I was digging ferns we my pubic bone last week lol

That's incredible!! I didn't think it would be that high that quickly either. I had my scan for my third baby at 13 weeks the other day and she was scanning lower than that. Would be interesting to see what your scan comes out at.

That is 100% baby's hb. It's not normally found that high till about 16 weeks!!!! When is your scan? Your have to keep us update.
I stupidly lent my Doppler to my sil and if I ask for it back she will know that I'm pregnant ???? x

Na just tell her a friend wants to borrow it, how many weeks are you?
oh god I'm scared now, wasn't sure if it was just me been crazy!
The strangest part is that it's jumped up high in the course of a week, oh my god what if it IS twins! I'm going to be anxiously waiting till my scan which is on 15th may!
ive been on YouTube and google but no one is shedding much light

Only 6.5 so don't need it just yet. I reckon you could be having twins ???? i don't know how your going to cope waiting till the 15th may to find out. It must be very reassuring to hear the hb tho x

You must have a friend on Facebook that is pregnant that u can say needs it lol you should start trying in a couple of weeks and compare to me!
my boyfriend is a twin, but it usually skips a generation! Must be another explanation to why it's so high, I got the Doppler with my last pregnancy at around 15weeks so I can't compare, maybe it's just a really good doppler lol I'm grasping at straws....
will just keep googling haha
