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
Ballottement indicates an increase of fluid over the patella at the knee joint - this has more to do with an injury or infection and nothing to do with pregnancy.
Braxton Hicks or practice contractions are uterine contractions not usually felt until the second trimester or third trimester of pregnancy - the only cause of Braxton Hicks is pregnancy.
Chadwick's sign is a bluish discoloration of the cervix, vagina, and labia caused by the hormone estrogen, its presence is an early sign of pregnancy.
Goodell's Sign is a softening of the cervix and vagina - an indication of pregnancy.
Hegar's sign is a softening at the cervix (lower end) and the fundus (top of) the uterus - an indication of pregnancy.
While similar conditions may have alternative causes - Braxton Hick's, Chadwick's, Goodell's and Hegar's are all found in pregnancy.
According to some doctors, about 30 days. But this depends totally on how much Marijuana has been smoked, for how long and how frequently.
All spiders have at least a small amount of poison, though this is miniscule in the infantory status. Even a baby black widow would be unlikely to cause serious harm to a child unless they were alergic. Baboon spiders are slightly less poisonous than black widows....but I wouldn't want them around to mature. Also when an egg sac opens there's a potential you could get swarmed...though most species tend not to eat for the first couple of days.
A child's heart will start to beat at 8 weeks.
I have just had the great news that me and my husband are expecting our first baby. This is thrilling news but now I am trying to gather as much information as I can. I'm currently at week 6 and am already feeling "hormonal" and can sense changes in my body, but I want to know what to expect in the future. What would be perfect for me would be a week by week guide to pregnancy which highlights all of the key milestones at that stage. I know I am asking a lot but does anybody have the titles of books on the subject or maybe web articles on the topic. Thanks for all those that help with this request, your support is appreciated.
Here are answers and opinions from Wiki s contributors:
first time Mums often don't feel the baby move until around 20 weeks, second time around you are more 'tuned in' and feel it earlier. However the baby has plenty of room to move and as you can only feel it if it touches the front of the uterus (just under the skin where the nerve endings are) you will not feel much especially if the placenta is at the front as well.
Before your pregnant:: It depends on when you find out that your pregnant, after about 4-5 months you should be able to see. ((That MAY be correct, don't count on that being for sure though)
After you give birth:: It should be obvious at that point. =)
A fetal pole and heartbeat are signs of a healthy pregnancy at 5 ½ to 6 ½ weeks.If there is a heartbeat, you have every reason to think you are having a healthy pregnancy. I would suggest maybe there is some miscalculation of the dates and further testing needs to be done; a serum hCG level, with a repeat in 6 days and an ultra-sound repeated in 3 to 7 days, should clear up a lot of questions. Below are the specific things to look for in the first trimester that will indicate pregnancy is progressing normally.The first trimester weeks 1 through the end of week 13.Weeks 3 -5 Since LMP - (Fetal Age 1 - 3 weeks): Between day 6 - 12 after conception, the blastocyst will imbed into the uterine lining, marking the beginning of the embryonic stage. At this time the thickening of the endometrium (uterine lining) is evident.
After the embryo implants into the endometrium, hCG starts to rise 18 - 7,340 mIU/m is a normal level and it will continue to double every 2 to 3 days. Before an embryo is visible, the yolk sac can be seen inside the gestational sac - late in the 3rd week.
Week 6 Since LMP - (Fetal Age - 4 weeks): A vaginal ultrasound could possibly detect an audible heartbeat at this time. The embryo is about a ½ inch in length.
5 ½ to 6 ½ weeks is usually when either a fetal pole or even a fetal heart beat by vaginal ultrasound is detected. The fetal pole is the first visible sign of a developing embryo. Normal hCG levels are 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml.
Week 8 since LMP - (Fetal Age - 6 weeks):Everything a full grown person has, your embryo now has (in miniature) The bones are beginning to form, and the muscles can contract. The embryo is at the end of the embryonic period and begins the fetal period.
A normal heartbeat at 6-7 weeks would be 90-110 beats per minute. The presence of an embryonic heart beat, is an indication of a healthy pregnancy. hCG levels will run 7,650 - 229,000 mIU/ml at 7 to 8 weeks.
Weeks 9 -13 since LMP - (Fetal Age - 7 to 14 weeks): The fetus has grown to about 3 inches in length and weighs about an ounce. The fetus can make a fist, and the buds for baby teeth appear. The head is nearly half the size of the entire fetus.
The hCG levels will peak at about 8-12 weeks of pregnancy normal levels will run from between 7,650 - 288,000 mIU/ml.
But, that biotechnology doesn't exist (not yet, anyway) and most mothers-to-be are oblivious that baby-making has begun until several weeks into it. In the meantime, they are apt to have done many things they wouldn't have done if only they had known.
Luckily, this is a concern that you can forget about. There's no evidence that a couple of drinks on a few occasions very early in pregnancy can influence harm on a developing embryo. So you, and others, can let this one go.
That said, it's definitely time to change your choice of drinks. If you continue to drink regularly throughout your pregnancy, you risk a wide variety of problems in the baby, including Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). Alcohol enters the fetal bloodstream in about the same concentrations present in the mother's blood. Meaning, each drink the mother takes is shared with the baby.
Here are answers and opinions from FAQ Farmers:
It would be great if a doctor could interject here and tell us the risk of 2 or 2 big drinking sessions in the first few weeks (and maybe further the next few weeks before we knew we were pregnant). There is a lot of conflicting information out there, and the most common thing to happen is that someone comes in and says "you shouldn't drink at all, are you crazy?", well how many people know they are pregnant in the first few weeks? We are trying to manage the risk of what has already happened. None of us are going to continue drinking, so let's start from here.
it depends on the chromosomes in the MALE. in females there are xx chromosomes, and in men there are xx AND xy chromosomes, so if xx chromosomes meet then its a girl, if xy chromosomes meet with an xx chromosone in the women at the ovum, then there will be a girl!
josh Rhodes your welcome :)
Just an additinal, there should be 46 chromosomes to have a normal baby , 23 from male and 23 from female.
The moving of your baby is usually very reassuring. It isn't unusual for a baby to have quiet times when there is not a lot of activity. It may help to lay on your side to notice if the baby is moving or if it is still. If you feel the baby is not as active as what seems normal, discuss it with your doctor. You can always visit your doctor to hear the baby's heartbeat, but in most instances, there is nothing to worry about. Good Luck, Stacey I am in my 5th month of pregnancy also,And it helps to lay on my back,or to lay on my side and just leave my hand on my stomach to catch its quick moves. While it may be normal in some cases I would just like to add that I was pregnant at four months my doc told me the baby was under weight and would be ok. At five months I hardley ever felt him move. At six month I had lost all my fluid and had him he only weighed one pound and almost did not make it he is healthy now. Just be very careful and make sure if you think something is not right go strait to your doctor.
When I was pregnant with my first (I have 4) it seemed like it took forever to feel the baby move. I don't think it had anything to do with my size. You probably just don't recognize the movement for what it is. I am very large, and the second time around I think I was about three months when I felt the baby move. I am thinking it was around the 4th-5th month with my first. I am a large woman and i think that sometimes during the first one you think that you feel something. sometimes you feel fluttering and its just small movements. you can really start to feel some real kicks around the fourth month. as you go along they get stronger. I've had 3 and i started to feel kicks about the end of the fourth. but everyone is different. Most women, large or small, feel a first baby move around 20 weeks. I remember vividly when I felt mine as we were visiting family and when I screamed they thought I had hurt myself. Second and subsequent babies are usually felt about 15-16 weeks. One of the reasons I thought I was having twins was because I felt movement at 13 weeks. A partner or friend may not feel the baby move because of intervening fat but as the woman feels it from the inside her size makes no difference
That would depend on what you mean by "a lot." Considering the fact that the baby has almost no room to move at 39 weeks, decreased movement is normal. Complete lack of movement is not. If you are concerned, go to your doctor and have him/her listen for the heartbeat.
Avoid any activities which might put you in danger of hurting your tummy. Don't start a new exercise program when pregnant. Eat healthy food. Drink plenty of liquids. Take prenatal vitamins. Don't use drugs, alcohol, or tobacco. Stay away from second-hand smoke.
No typically the heart does not start beating until 6 weeks, but the way pregnancy is measured at "2 weeks pregnant" you aren't even pregnant yet, since most women ovulate 2 weeks after the first day of their last menstrual cycle. That would be when you are two weeks pregnant when you are just ovulating. So if you mean can you hear the heartbeat two weeks after you find out your are pregnant then yes, you should because you would actually be somewhere between 5-7 weeks along.
I think you can most definitely feel the baby's heartbeat in the mother's neck with your finger, because I was pregnant before and I was able to see and feel my babies heartbeat in my neck
No; one month is 4 weeks, it's an embryo & only a few centimeters long. Most people do not feel their baby move until 18-22 weeks pregnant.
No not necessarily
Fetus sex can be determined by ultrasound only after the genitals have somewhat formed. It is not possible to determine the fetus's sex judging by HR. Although women have a higher HR than men, extrapolation to fetus is not possible keeping in mind things go a lot different when you breathe amniotic fluid instead of air.
It's a good thing that your baby kicks, it will always tell you that he or she's doing fine! It might be painful and uncomfortable but the baby is fine, he/she is just active, so be prepared for when he/she turns 2!
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.
