hi ladies

when can you hear a babies heart beating on a scan? im having a scan on Wednesday (il be 5 weeks and 6 days pregnant) and the purpose of this scan is to check that babies heart is beating ( to make sure im not having another molar pregnancy).

Do you think the scan on wednesday will be able to pick it up??

Thanks xxx

I saw my lil one's heartbeat at 6w+3, but I think it starts to beat between week 5 & 6.

Good luck at your scan!

Hi there,

I had a scan at 5 weeks and 2 days. No heartbeat but fully formed fetal pole which measured the size of a 6 week 4 day foetus. Got told that I had my dates wrong and that by 6 weeks and 4 days there should be a heartbeat. I told them I couldn't possibly be 6 weeks and 4 days but they just kept telling me that it would be a 1 in a million chance for the foetus to ever develop a heartbeat and to expect to start having a miscarriage over the next few days. They asked me to come back at 6 weeks and 4 days (the real 6 weeks and 4 days from my dates!) to check that it was starting to come away.

At the scan at 6 weeks and 4 days, instead of finding the foetus coming away, they found a heartbeat! The nurse was totally bemused! We couldn't believe it. I have to go back for regular scans to check it is ok.

I'm not sure about other people but we got the heartbeat at 6 weeks and 4 days and my friend got hers at 7 weeks and 2 days. If you are going at 5 weeks and 6 days and they don't find a heartbeat, don't give up hope. My friend had nothing at all formed at 5 weeks and 3 days but got a heartbeat at 7 weeks and 2 days.

It's such a worrying time. I hope everything goes well for you.

Generally starts beating between 6-7 wks, some slightly earlier but it's not always. I'm actually surprised they haven't waited just a few more days if a HB is what they're looking for.
I got scaned at 5+4 and only saw sacs, scanned again at 7+2 and HB seen and heard.
Good luck!!
