When can you hear the heartbeat with a doppler?

I go to the Dr. next week and will be 9 1/2 weeks and was wondering if they will hear the heartbeat on the doppler? Although I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks and saw it there, I am still freaking that something might happen and we won't hear it!

  • You should be able to hear it, I heard mine and I was not that much farther along than you are right now.

  • Depends. If you are relatively skinny you might. A heavier person probably 10-11 weeks. You can try, but don't freak if you can't find it. it may take another week or two.
