Yep! Start at your hairline, with the wand angled down into your pelvic cavity, and go in very slow very small circles. Baby is still tiny and your uterus is still behind your pelvic bone, so it's hard to find at 10 weeks.

Jessica - Sorry that you still haven't been able to find it. When it your next appt? Maybe they could help show you exactly where to look?

Alissa, my next appt is Oct 17th. The MW said she wasn't even going to attempt to look for it while I was in there last time because I have a "little tummy". My tummy isn't little LOL, but she said 14 weeks is a good starting point for me to find it.

....I still try to find it about every other day, but I've noticed I give up more and more easily each time
