The fetal heart begins beating about 3 weeks after conception. Its not visible on abdominal ultrasound until about 7 weeks from last menstrual period or 5 weeks from conception. Its visible about 1.5-2 weeks sooner with a vaginal ultrasound. You can't base any type of paternity question on whether or not theres a heartbeat but only on the measurement of the fetus on the date you had the scan.
