No, with a Doppler stethoscope it can be heard at approx. 8-10 weeks in a thin woman.An ultrasound machine can see the fetal heart at 6-8 weeks depending on the qualiity of the machine. The fetal heart is way to small to feel early in the pregnancy, in fact, it cannot even be felt at full term.

yes you can hear the baby's heart beat or fetal sounds by the use of ultrasounds or stethoscope, but it's kinda hard to determine which is the mother's heart beat and the baby's heart beat so it's best to use ultrasounds as stated

A common diagnostic procedure, an ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to "echo," or bounce, off the body and create a picture. A special jelly is applied to the skin on the expectant mother's abdomen, and a wand-like instrument (called a transducer) is positioned over it. Sound waves are generated and reflected back to the transducer as electric impulses, which produce an image of the baby on a computer screen. The images seen on most two-dimensional ultrasounds are difficult for the untrained eye to decipher. What might look like a hand to an expectant parent might actually be a foot - which is why the images must be interpreted by a properly trained technician. A doctor will then view the report and make his or her own interpretations.

When used as they were to intended be used - in low power levels and for short periods of time by trained professionals such as sonographers, radiologists, and obstetricians - ultrasounds are a standard procedure used to:

  • diagnose a pregnancy
  • determine multiple pregnancies
  • verify the age of the fetus
  • detect birth defects and fetal movement
  • evaluate the position of the placenta
  • monitor the fetal growth and heartbeat

Usually performed between 18 and 20 weeks, an ultrasound may be done sooner or later and sometimes more than once.

You cannot feel the actual heartbeat of the baby, but you can feel movements of the baby and LISTEN to the heartbeat. If you can actually 'feel' a heartbeat, chances are it is your own and is just easier to feel on your stomach than usual because it is stretched to accomodate the growing baby. Your baby could also be having hiccups in the womb which is what you could be feeling- my son had them frequently and it would seem like a heartbeat but it's only hiccups (their hearts beat almost twice as fast as our own so you can easily distinguish hiccups from heartbeat)

No, you are feeling your own heartbeat as the blood flow to your uterus is increased.

You can not feel the babies heartbeat during pregnancy. However the heart beat can be detected by fetal monitor as early as 8 weeks.

You can never feel the baby's heartbeat during any time in the pregnancy. If you feel one it is your own.

Is it possible to hear a babys heart beat loud and strong at nine weeks pregnant?

With a doctors "listener" it can be heard. I wouldn't say loud and clear, but it's possible it could be loud and clear, depends on the woman and the baby.AnswerYes I heard my babys heartbeat at 9 weeks pregnant with a at home fetal monitor. AnswerA vaginal ultra sound can detect a heartbeat as soon as 6 weeks gestation but more commonly at 7-8 weeks. The fetal Doppler used on the outside of your belly should pick up a heartbeat at 12 weeks clearly. AnswerA fetal heartbeat can be heard as early as 8-10 weeks pregnant using a good fetal Doppler such as one rented from Tummy Tickles or a company like that. AnswerYes it can be heard. I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks and heart it perfectly and then again at 9 weeks on a Doppler in the doctors office.

Can you feel a heartbeat through your stomach?

You cannot feel a baby's heartbeat through your stomach, no. If you are feeling this, it is probably your pulse. You can feel this, particularly when lying down, because a main artery runs down the stomach. but when sitting down or standing why can my friend (male) feeel his belly move like a hert beat andwhen putting his hand his stomach why is it like he's thumping hard like heartbeat


It is possible water get in to the body trough the belly bottom?

No it is not possible for water to get into the body through the belly bottom. The belly bottom is a layer of skin fat and muscle that is not permeable and therefore water cannot pass through it. The body can absorb water through other areas such as the: Mouth Eyes Nose SkinWater can enter the body through these areas as they are all permeable and can absorb water molecules. The belly bottom is not able to absorb water as it is a barrier to keep it out.


Does it mean you are pregnant if you feel pulse in your belly?

yes you can feel the babys heart beat and feel the baby kicking around
