Earliest you've heard heartbeat?


I've bought a sonoline Doppler which will be delivered tomorrow, I was wondering what's the earliest you've heard bubba? And any tips as I've not used one before.

I just ordered one too, Ricschick. I used one during my last two pregnancies, also. The earliest I could find my last baby was around 10 weeks, I believe. There are a lot of ladies online who claim they've found the heartbeat at 7 and 8 weeks...but honestly, that is rare, and not the norm. It is very likely that what they actually heard, was the whooshing from the placenta, their own heartbeat, etc. It's just really, really hard to find the hb on something so small...and baby is moving all over at this gestation too. Good luck! I'm sure there ARE people who have heard it this early on with their dopplers...but I don't think it's as common as the web will have you believe.

7 weeks 1 day. But only with one pregnancy (ds2) and he was always easy to find.

The other 4 I have tracked were all 8-9w, and sometimes tricky xx

10+4 (when I got it) with dd1, 8+6 first try with dd2 and 8+0 faintly for a second with this one and tried again at 8+2 and I have the recording and NO it was not my heartbeat or anything but baby!! It IS possible to hear heartbeat in 7th/8th week with doppler but it IS very rare!!!!

Edit to say: this baby has been harder to find some days than my previous two, some days I search and search only to find it very faintly and other days it's instantly found loud and clear, every pregnancy is different and some babies hide really well!!!

Here's the recording at 8+2

Here's mine as well. You can tell how early I was, it's so quiet and slightly slower compared to later!

7 weeks



9 weeks

Like previous posters have said, it's not easy, I really didn't think I'd try until I was further along but I saw the doppler lying around and thought, well why not!! I found the heartbeat for this baby at exactly 9 weeks. I have had a previous c-section and kept the wand in the centre with tiny movements of pointing it in different directions, so I didn't lift it up and move it along or anything. I used a Sonoline B also.

Don't be fazed if you don't find it, I've struggled to find it since but know all is well.

Here's a link to my youtube video of it: https://youtu.be/8B9gbfdtmG8

Good Luck xxxx

Earliest was 8w with my second born. I couldn't hear until 14 weeks with my current (fifth) pregnancy, so don't worry if you don't find it for a few more weeks!

My sonoline b was 8+1 with this baby, it took a few minutes to find, easiest with a full bladder.
With my son it was 10 weeks which is when I got th doppler and I found his straight away
