Curious About Babies Heart Beat

I went for my first visit today at 8 weeks and got to see the babies heartbeat but did not hear it. Is that normal, and if so, when do you actually get to hear it. They also did not tell me the heart rate.

I heard, but didn't see the heartbeat at 7.5 weeks. They didn't tell me the heart rate the first time either. If they use a doppler, then you can hear it but not see it, if you have a vag. ultra sound, then you can see it but not hear it. So, I guess you get one or the other. At least that's the way I understand it...hopefully it's right. At least you got to see the little flicker and you know your baby is in there!! Good Luck!!

Melissa~ I went in for an v____al ultra sound at 8 weeks and saw that there was 2 babies. Both had a very fast flicker and we did get the heartbeats at 167 & 162 and heard them. Maybe call your ob and ask if they doc_mented what the heartbeat was.

I had an v____al u/s at 6wks and saw the heartbeat but didn't hear it. The heartbeats were 150.

Hello, i had a reg u/s at 7w and heard the heartbeat, it was 167. I thought that was pretty fast. Good luck!

You can't hear the heartbeat with a v____al ultrasound. You'll get to hear it later with a doppler.
