At what point can I buy a doppler and expect to hear things? I'm 10w today, having my first midwife appt next Tuesday and then I'll be waiting several weeks for my ultrasound appt but I want to tell family about the baby on Christmas day as I'll be 12 weeks then and don't see my family often. I'm reluctant to tell people mostly because I keep reading about missed miscarriages and I just want some reassurance... I've got every symptom in the book but if I had had a missed mc would the symptoms take ages to go away?
This is my first ever pregnancy so maybe I'm just worrying unnecessarily and I should tell people?
