  • Im not sure about THAT but as you progress theyll have more of an idea when they can get measurements of the fetus. its still an embryo so itll be hard to tell yet. you should find out soon though.

  • when you hear the heartbeat at the doctors, its usually 8-10 weeks. your baby has a heart beat right away, but its so small you cant hear it until about 8-10wks along :).. im excited ill hear my babies on my first dr appointment.. unfortunately its not until aug 12th :(.. im ALREADY 10 weeks.
