You can hear the heartbeat by doppler at about 10weeks, it is best heard from 12 weeks on. You can hear the heartbeat at about 5 week by ultrasound. --- This is # 4 , I consider myself seasoned. ---- ZaphanandKia
My first appointment with my firstborn was at 12 weeks and I heard the heartbeat then.  My first appointment with my second was at 8 weeks, and I don't remember hearing it, but I did see him on the screen with a vaginal ultrasound.  My next appointment after that was at 12 weeks, and I heard it then too.
my Sister-in-law is just at 8 wks and got to hear her baby's heart beat

I recently went to this Pregnancy Help Clinic they gave me an ultrasound and I was told I was 6wks and 5 days and I heard a heartbeat. It is the most amazing thing to expierience. There are places in most states that do ultrasounds for free to help determine pregnancy after a urine test.
I had went to the doctors today. Im 5 weeks and 6 days pregnant. They said the baby had no heart beat. I was wonsering in high hopes if maybe this is because its to ealry to hear the heart beat...
