  • The VERY earliest is about 10weeks to hear the heartbeat, but is more likey to hear it closer to 12 weeks. It all depends on the position of the baby.

  • it's not me that is trying hear my baby. i worked with a lady before i got pregnant who has claimed a million and ten times that she is pregnant. well she is back on the "im pregnant" thing and is saying she 5 weeks and has heard the heart beat. i was just wondering if there coud be any truth to her story.

  • Well I was 8 weeks at my first appointment, we thought I was 10 weeks, which is why they tried, and we did hear her heartbeat. My next appiontment they did an ultrasound and found out I was two weeks earlier than we originally figured according to my period..
