When can you hear heartbeat at Doctor's Office?
I have my first OB appt on Monday, I will be almost 9 weeks. I was wondering when you can hear the heartbeat at the Dr's office if you don't have an ultrasound? Also, I have read alot of other people's HCG levels and am wondering if mine were high. At 6 weeks they were 31000. I know there is a large range but mine are on the high end. Any thoughts? THANKS
I think the norm is 12 weeks but sometimes it all depends on luck and how the bay is positioned. I could hear it clearly at 10 weeks 3 days at home with a rented Doppler.
Good Luck, I am off to my 2nd appointment.
I went to the Dr at 12 weeks to hear the heart beat on the doppler...and couldnt hear it. He said it was iffy sometimes you can and sometimes you cant. So I had an ultrasound and everything was fine. He said definately would be able to at 14 weeks. But everyones different.
