  • The baby already has a heartbeat. The heart starts beating 22 days after conception, or at 5 weeks 1 day. So if you have an ultrasound, you should see it. As for hearing it with the Doppler, that comes anywhere between 9 and 12 weeks, usually. But my SIL's placenta is right out in front, so she didn't hear it until about 16 weeks.

  • i am either right at 5 weeks or a little less than 5 weeks and we saw the fluttering of the heartbeat yesterday!!
