  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Well heart beat can be heard with Doppler at this time and with advancing pregnancy, it will be better heard with Doppler as well stethoscope also. As your doctor has assured, so stay calm. After 20 to 24 weeks you may start perceiving movements. If still worried you can confirm it on ultrasound.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
