    I am lucky, my doctor has US in her office, so yes she checked the heartbeat at my first appointment. I don't know when I will be able to hear it though. Forgot to ask.

    Note to myself: always make a list of questions to ask the doctor. I got home from the visit and instantly had five hundred more questions.

    They checked at my second appointment when I was 11 weeks, but not the first since I was only 7 weeks.

    yeah, i am really hoping they do. because my first appointment is 12 wks :( n i have to wait for tht to get my scan booked which is a five wk waiting list :( n i wanna definatly know befoe 18 wks whether everything is ok. because i am a lil scared, i still have the odd period pain not any blood or anything just the odd pain n its bothering me as to whether everything is ok.
