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.
