  • First calm down - if at anytime you are concerned, call your doctor. Thats what they are here for.
    If your talking about a Home doppler that you buy at a store, it can be 8 weeks to 15 weeks before you can hear anything. Depends on the unit your using, and where the baby is laying. As far as what area in ur stomach... again, depends cause the baby moves around. Its like your playing Hide & Seek and Tag your it hahaha. Good Luck.

  • Yes. What she said. Most of the time you will be able to hear it between your belly button and your pelvis. Until later trimesters. Also the pain in your belly button could be your muscles stretching. Drink lots of water and rest. Oh another thing when using an at home heart monitor, the slower beat is yours the faster beat is your babies. We have a large artery running down our belly.
