When did you hear the heartbeat?

I went to the OB on Friday and was 11w5d and among other problems- I didn't get to hear the heartbeat.
I think I always heard my 3 boys heartbeat around 10 weeks.
I will be switching OB's and will have to drive about an hour to my new (well old- she delivered my second son) OB.

Re: When did you hear the heartbeat?

I heard all mine around 9-10 weeks.. but keep in mind.. I am a boney thing..and my OB said the more padding you have.. the less chance of hearing it early .. so I think that had alot to do with it that early
having said that.. my cousin didnt hear any of hers till about 14 weeks.. and she isnt a big girl.. I guess the baby just wanted to

I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks and heard the heartbeat then. But with the doppler, my OB couldn't find it until 14 weeks. With my son is was at 12 weeks.
