  • i think heart beat starts before 8 wks (i want to say 6 wks but may be wrong) and feeling the flutter i felt the first ones at about 20 wks but it differs for each person..I have heard from lots of mommies that they felt their second baby a whole lot sooner than they did their first

  • heartbeat starts at exactly 5 weeks.

    flutter.. you mean movements?! some earlier.. some later.. mine started at around 24-26 weeks

  • heart starts beating at the end of the 4th week begging of the 5th week but you wont be able to hear it through a doppler till about week 12th. Flutters can be detected earlier in 2nd time pregnancys and could be felt as early as 12 weeks or sooner. Between 4-9 weeks I think it would be too soon since the baby is still to small. This is my 3rd pregnancy and my first pair of twins but I havent felt anything yet. I'm 9 weeks.
