With an ultrasound, at about 3 or 4 weeks. With the device the doctor uses in the room, at about 9 weeks. I don't know for the things you buy at the store.

I am going to disagree with this last answer. With a vaginal ultra sound a heartbeat can be detected as early as 6 weeks gestation but more commonly by 7-8 weeks gestation. Of course she could be right and we are just counting the weeks differently.

With my first child my Dr. could hear my son's heart beat at 7 weeks with out a ultra sound and now being pregnant with my second child and having the experience in a medical setting working in a OB practice I have heard my baby's heart beat at 5 weeks and 3 days.

How soon can you hear a baby?

actually my wife & i heard the baby heart beat @ 6 weeks and 2 days threw ultra sound! and she is not very thin she is average about 150! 5"2. Honestly if you dont hear a heart beat by 7 weeks you need to get an internal ulta sound which most obs have! **Have to disagree with this. It is not possible to 'hear' the heart beat this early - in an ultrasound you can only see it. Being able to see it really has nothing to do with the woman's weight at all. If it is there, you can see it. Otherwise the details are correct. In terms of hearing, they say around 9weeks to hear with the fetal doppler! *** Through the Belly, no probably not, but through a trans-vaginal ultrasound, yes it IS possible to hear the heartbeat around 7 weeks :-) which is what he is talking about above... you cannot say it's impossible. It's not. Just because it wasn't possible in your case doesn't mean anything. Try a different ultrasound method. Saw - not heard.

Can a baby hear the heart beat of an unborn baby by laying their head on your tummy?

Yes, around 7 months and near where the placenta lies. It's best if your spouse or partner first listen so they can direct the "soon to be big brother or sister" to the appropriate area of your belly.

How soon can you hear a baby's heartbeat?

The baby's heart beat can be seen on an ultrasound at around 7 weeks, and if you are very slim MAY be heard on a Doppler from 9 or 10 weeks. Here is more advice and input: * Most Heartbeats can be heard by 15/16 weeks. * My doctor wasn't able to hear my babies until I was about 3-4 months pregnant. * It is most generally possible to begin to hear the baby's heart beat at the beginning of your second trimester, however sometimes it is possible to hear it a couple of weeks before or after these dates as well. It most likely depends on the size of the baby and how quickly it is growing in each individual person. I personally heard my baby's heart beat the first time at 14 weeks with my first, 13 weeks with my second and 10 weeks pregnant with my current pregnancy. * You can start to hear the babies heartbeat through ultrasound as soon as 6 weeks into your pregnancy! A Doppler can start to pick up a heartbeat at around 10-14 weeks into your pregnancy. A stethoscope can be used to hear the baby's heartbeat late in the pregnancy. * If you have an early scan it can be seen from about 6 weeks. If listening with a Doppler and you are very slim sometimes (not always) it can be heard from about 8 weeks. A midwife listening with a Pinard can hear it from about 22-24 weeks. * You may be able to see it on an ultrasound at about 7 weeks but unless you are very thin you won't be able to hear it with a Doppler until about 10 weeks, possibly later. Until 12 weeks the uterus is still in the pelvis and the heart is very small and the machine has to be pointed directly at the heart so the sound is reflected, unlike a microphone. * I heard my baby's heart beat at almost eight weeks and it was very strong :) I think everyone is just different it depends largely on your specific pregnancy
