That’s too soon for some doctors to try because if they can’t find it they don’t want you to worry. My OB never even tries until the 12 week appointment and sometimes not until the 16 week. It depends on your doctor on when you hear the heartbeat. Congrats on the baby though!

If they do a vaginal ultrasound, they’ll definitely be able to hear the heartbeat by then. We went at 7 weeks for our first OB appointment and ultrasound, and we heard our little guy’s heartbeat loud and clear! So it depends on if your doctor uses an internal ultrasound machine or just a doppler. If it’s just a doppler, probably not.

Congratulations and hope you have a happy, healthy 9 months!

Congratulations!!! I went to the doctor at 4w2d and they just did the basics – blood tests, pelvic exam, weight/bloodpressure and calculated my due date. I have an appointment next week for my US to hopefully hear the heartbeat! i’ll be 7w4d when i go in.
