Not an advice forum: You are on HealthTap's free public informational forum. Information only, meaning this is not a medical advice forum. We have doctors available on video on our private consultations forum, but they are taking care of simple primary care issues, not specialty issues such as prenatal problems. Anyway, around 10 weeks gestation, the fetus's heart is big enough to be able to hear it using ultrasound.
