what is the earliest you heard your baby's heartbeat? I didn't hear either one of my child's till I was 12-13 weeks. With my second the dr. tried at 10 weeks, but couldn't get it, but I have a "friend" that says that she heard her baby's heartbeat at 7 weeks. is that possible?

  • I had an ultrasound done at 6 weeks, and I only got to see the heartbeat because he said the beating would be too faint that early, so I didnt get to hear mines until i was around 10-12 weeks can't remember which one.

  • I saw the heartbeat at 7 weeks ultrasound and if I remember I heard it too. My doctor seemed to think if you are very lean its easier to hear as there is not much packing on the belly to sheild it.
