Hi there! Ultrasounds are usually done between 17-20 weeks. You should be able to hear the heartbeat at your obgyn appointment around 8-12wks!  Hope this helps!  Good luck!

Usually the first scan is done around 6-7 was at least that's been my experience with all my kids. They make sure the baby is in proper placement an measure to see how far along you really are

Depends where you are and what Obstetrician you see. Generally the first scan is around 9 weeks and is a dating scan to give you your expected due date. My ob gives a scan every visit so with this bub had a scan at around 6 weeks.
