Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Fetal heart beat can be heard by Ultrasound in late first trimester and early second trimester . If you donot hear heart beat at an instance , other investigations like Doppler should be done to re evaluate .Hearing fetal heart beat depends on many factors like uterus position and contractions.

If you need more information feel free to mail me.

Take care
