No, the heart does not even begin to beat until around 6 wks. But with a dopler, you don't always or consistantly hear it until 12-14 wks. You SHOULD be able to hear it after around 13wks if you have not heard it before (at least I think that is the wk number).
Usually I have not been able to hear my until closer to 14 wks. That is why I was surprised to hear mine at 10 wks this time. But, I am happy!
