They can usually hear it on the doppler around 10 to 12 weeks. When it is before that it is usually on an ultrasound. I am really thin so I heard my babys at 10 weeks. I hope this helps.

Lisa, a doppler is a small device the doctor has in his office that he puts on your tummy and listens to a speaker to hear the sounds from your uterus.

So I gave it the wrong name...whatever! I heard the babies heartbeat at 7 weeks; with no headphones...may be they have different equipment here in Korea.

I have pregnancy brain here...7 weeks for v____al and 11 weeks for the doppler. Sorry.

I heard it clearly (first try) on the heart doppler at 9 weeks, but the doctor had warned me we might not be able to hear it that soon. His words were, "Let's see if we get lucky... " He seemed pleasantly surprised to have picked it up so quickly, so I know that not everyone can hear their baby so early. It was relatively quiet compared to the sounds I heard from the neighboring rooms in the clinic, but it was distinct. I am quite chunky, by the way... over 200 pounds.

I am 12 weeks and 3 days and just heard it today! But I heard it via ultrasound in week 8 and week 10.

I rented a doppler and heard it before doctors appointment at 10.5 weeks, but at first it was really hard to locate. Im going on 15 weeks and now its louder but is in different areas all the time.

22 weeks

My midwife tried the doppler on me this morning but she couldnt hear the heartbeat. She said it was too early because my uterus was still down in my pelvic area, but she said she could hear it moving around. I still cant help feeling paranoid. Should I be


... - November 1

Laura--I've never heard of a dr. say they can hear it moving around...if she can hear that she should be able to hear the heart beat you would think. How far along are you? At 12 wks 6 days my dr. told me the heartbeat can still be really hard to find, and that sometimes she can't find it so she will do an u/s. She finally found it after a minute or two, it was a lot quieter than I expected. If you're still pretty early the baby is still pretty far down in your pelvis so they might not be able to hear it yet. Did she offer you an u/s?
