had a docs appointment today, and to put my mind at rest he listened into baby - found heartbeat eventually. the thing is, according to my dates, i am not due til 26th October - making me just 9 weeks, yet, midwife believes im more like 12/13 weeks..... my best mate reckons i must be over 12 weeks for doc to have heard heartbeat??! Says the norm is between 12 and 16 weeks for this?! Ive got a dating scan on thursday so will know for sure then, just wondered if anyone else could assist?????
I heard the heartbeat at somewhere between 10 and 11 weeks... My scan at 20 weeks put my dates back by a week so that means it was between 9 and 10 weeks so I was and still am confused. MW did struggle to find it again the next day (so that dhcould listen in) so she came back 2 weeks later - 11/12/13 weeks, whatever!- and heard it first time
i don'tknow if that helps you or not!
I have my first appt with the middwife on 4th May when i'll be 12 weeks! Does anyone know if I will get to hear the heartbeat at this visit as my midwife is based at my GP's, or do I have to wait for a hospital visit??
For jessicasmummy I pretty sure you can hear the heartbeat sometimes as early as 7 weeks
