I'm 12 wks and 4 days i think still haven't found out exactly..well since i haven't been able to get into my doctor yet to hear the heart beat my mom told me to use a stethoscope to try and hear the heart beat well i did that and i didnt hear anything and now its made me more nervous that i can't hear anything and it scares me...someone please help me ??
Oh, don't freak out. It is impossible to hear it with a stethescope that early! Heck, I was almost in my third trimester before it could be heard with a good stethescope and even then it took some time to find it.
She's right, you cannot hear the hb until late second, or third trimester w/a stethoscope. If you are that interested in hearing it, why not rent or purchase a doppler? It picks up fetal heartbeat at 10 weeks.
