Your baby’s heart has starting beating now and it is beating at the rate of 150-160 beats per minute. The heart has been divided into four chambers and it has started pumping blood. When you will visit your gynaecologist, you might listen to the heartbeat of your baby during the ultrasound session although it will be only more prominent by 8 weeks.
