  • With a doppler it is about week 12. With a stethoscope is in somewhere in the 20's I believe.

  • At both of my first appointments, I was 10 weeks and we heard the heart beat then. Typically a doctor won't schedule your first appointment until you're about 10 to 12 weeks. If you're 10 weeks and you don't hear the heart beat, then you may not quite be 10 weeks yet.
