Highly unlikely to hear it that early on the doppler.  Most doctors won't even try!

Ok I couldn't remember from my other pregnancies lol. I have my first appointment coming up but they don't do ultrasounds until the second appointment. I want some re assurance that there is a heartbeat :/ guess ill just be waiting lol thanks

They used the doppler on me at 10 weeks, 2 days and were surprised to hear him. So 8 weeks may be a little early, still.

No. You'll hear it between 10-12 weeks.

Not usually....its been my experience that they can usually get it around 12ish wks....they could with my first but my 2nd they couldn't so they did an U/S to make sure HB was good
By 16wks its FOR SURE they can pick it up with a doppler

My doc doesn't even try with a doppler before 12wks
