How afar along do you have to be before you can hear the heartbeat? I don't remember with my first two but I think that I could be anywhere between 3-7 weeks. I took a test the other day and it had a faint positive. I'm just waiting to take another test. Think I will take one later today.

  • Well I found out I was pregnant around 10 weeks, I couldn't get into the doctor until 12 weeks and we were able to hear it then!!

  • i am 11 weeks and just heard my babys heartbeat!! Sooo exciting! :) i don't remember what it was with my first, because i wasn't able to get prenatal care until i was well into my 2nd trimester, closer to my third. Hope you hear it soon!

  • I don't think you can hear it with a dopplar until 8 or so weeks but most likely 10 and above. Vaginal u/s can see it at soon as 5-6 weeks.
