Is it bad if your 8 weeks pregnant and your doctor can't feel a heartbeat?

It depends on the way it was tested. If using a hand-held machine sometimes the heartbeat cannot be found at 8 weeks. If the doctor was using an ultrasound machine a heartbeat should be visible at 8 weeks. The doppler, which most doctors use to detect a fetal heartbeat, can usually not detedt the heart until around 10 weeks, especially if the woman is overweight. As stated above, the ultrasound can detect it sooner.
