when does heart beat start??


Just a very quick question. I was just wondering when a baby's heart starts to beat in the womb?. I know that its sometime in the first tri but exactly when??.I am just so desperate to get the doppler out to have a wee listen..

hey there,

The heart starts beating at around 5-6 weeks, however it may only be detected by internal US at this stage, you may not be able to find it with a doppler til 2nd tri but some can after around 10-11 weeks. If you can't find it until later don't worry some docs wont try until 16 weeks. I hope this helps

around 5 weeks it starts to beat but wont be detected with a scan until 6-7 weeks!

Far too early for a doppler think the earliest iv seen someone say they picked it up with a doppler was 9+5 i didnt even try til 14 weeks incase i panicked at not finding it

midwifes dont even attempt to hear a hb until the 16 week appointment

I picked up a heartbeat on my doppler last time at 10 weeks. I have the Hi-Bebe doppler and it's well worth the money!

Beltane, did you try with the doppler before 10 weeks but didnt pick up a heart beat or was the first time you used the doppler at 10 weeks ??

I think I ordered it online around 6 weeks and found it around 10 weeks. I did however see the heartbeat at my 6 week scan. Hope that helps!

I might have found it earlier on the doppler but I remember it being really strong at 10 weeks.
