    Sounds normal hun. They don't like to listen for the heartbeat until 24 weeks anymore. In case they can't find it and it causes worry.

    I didn't even have a 16 week appt. I went or my booking in and won't see the mw now til 25 weeks! Apart from my scans I've seen no one in that time

    You should have asked them. They listened to my baby's heartbeat at 16 weeks. But if you're not happy with your MW I would see about getting a new one.

    I think it varies on the area you live as to whether they listen for the hb at your 16 week appointment. I know where I live they do like to listen at 16 weeks but I can understand why they don't because it can still be hard to find.

    I saw midwife and consultant at 17 weeks.

    Midwife checked urine and blood pressure, student tried to find heartbeat but couldnt, midwife went straight to it.
