When will I get to hear my baby's heartbeat?

I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow. When will I get to hear my baby's heartbeat? I have an appointment with my midwife on Wednesday. Will it still be too early to hear it then? She hasn't told me whether or not she's going to try to hear it at this appointment so I'm not sure.

  • When I was pregnant with my son, I heard his heart beat at my first OB appt, probably about 10 or 11 weeks.

  • I didn't hear my baby's heartbeat until I was 16 weeks. It just differs for everyone. They tried at 12 weeks and couldn't hear it so they did an ultrasound to verify that it was beating and it surely was! Congrats if you get to hear it! If not, don't worry it might just be too early.

  • I hope so! I won't be worried if I don't hear it because at my last sonogram we were able to see the heart beating, so I know it's beating :P I just want to hear it! Thanks for answering, ladies :)

  • With my first I heard it around 12 weeks for a brief second. My second one we seen/ heard his on ultrasound at 7 weeks, but couldn't pick it up on doppler until I was 16 weeks

  • I went in at 10weeks and she tried to find the heartbeat, but we couldnt ick it up on the doppler, so we had to do an ultrasound (you can imagine hoe upset i was about that! haha) so i got to see my lil jellybean again! Good luck!
