  • I really dont think you can feel the babys heartbeat, with the fluid, etc.. that cushions the baby I dont think it is possible but that could be your heartbeat, a pregnant womans heartbeat increases during pregnancy.

  • The heartbeat is the pulsing of the cord but you can feel the baby move if you know what to feel for

  • Heartbeat, no...but I felt my last baby for the first time at 13 weeks, so that's possible.

  • You won't feel a heartbeat. Usualy with your first you won't feel the baby until about 17-22 weeks. And it will feel like flutters, pops, or like a muscle twitch. With your second and other pregnancies you can feel those flutters as soon as 12-14 weeks. BUT at 14 weeks the baby is still below your belly button, not above it or the stomach area.

  • You could feel your baby move at this stage but not the heartbeat. I think in your case it may be something else. At 14 weeks the baby is still a lot lower then that. the top of your uterus should still be 3-4 inhes below your belly button.
