  • Yeah, there can be issues seeing a heartbeat until 10-12 weeks. I wouldn't be concerned. =)

  • Don't worry about it. =) My OB/GYN doesn't even listen for the heartbeat until the third visit (somewhere around 12 weeks, I think). If there was a reason to be concerned, your doctor would have told you and probably ordered two rounds of blood work.

  • Yeah it's a bit early to see it. But by six-seven it should be visible on ultrasound. They won't listen for it with the doppler until 10-12 weeks.
