Plus size and pregnant here! I’ve heard that it can be more difficult to hear baby’s heartbeat when you carry more weight. My Mother-In-Law bought us a gift certificate for a heartbeat session from a baby ultrasound clinic, so I’m wondering when the best time to go is. When did you first hear baby’s heartbeat?

Plus size and prego here! The average time when you can hear a heart beat with just a Doppler would be probably around 14w-16w. I think that’s typical for everyone,plus size or not. That’s when we heard mine. I think it’s sooner for an intravaginal one but I’m not positive.

Depends on what means you are using to get the heartbeat. With a transvaginal u/s, I saw it at 5+6 and should be able to hear it at my next appointment on Thursday at 8 weeks. With Dear Daughter, I heard it at mid 7 weeks.
If you are doing a Doppler or something that is on the belly, the earliest most people can hear it is 12 weeks.
