    Depends on the area I think. Was hoping to hear the heartbeat at 16 weeks too, got a Doppler instead : P

    I'm not sure as at 16 weeks I was under obs rather than midwife. They didn't but appointment after I asked them to they should if u request it whether they want to or not.

    I know I'm in another country, and so things might be different, but I just had my 16 week recently and they listened to mine. Heck my MW even checked for it, and found it, at my 12 week appointment. But again, I am in another country and that might mean a difference.

    You could always ask and see?

    She did at mine (barely caught it so if she does but can't find it don't be scared). It depends on what area you're in though. I had to wait until I was in labour ward at 20 weeks to hear the heartbeat.

    Didn't at mine but my friend did at hers and she's just in the next town. If she doesn't maybe just ask and see if she will! x
